The minimum from the ASF side is that more than one PPMC member has 
access to the account - for example to be able to quickly send an urgent 
message, or if the account creator disappears and isn't maintaining the 
account.  So adding another PPMC member to help administer will work 
just fine - even if they don't speak your target language, they could at 
least still access the account and update it (perhaps updating the list 
of admins with a new volunteer) if for some reason you are not able to.

I.e. not everyone who is an admin on the account has to post to it 
regularly.  Some projects - smaller ones than this, however - just send 
the login details to all PMC members, just to ensure they can access the 
account if needed.

Does that make sense?

I agree, the other important issue is having volunteers who can actually 
post relevant things to the account regularly - it sounds like you are 
covering that for the time being.
