I don't completely understand what you mean (and of course I am not a 
lawyer), but if you mean that you translated the OOoAuthors 
documentation and you would like to relicense your translation under the 
Apache license, this is not possible nor necessary:

- not possible because translation counts as derived work, so it 
inherits the GPL[+CC-BY] license and you can't change it unless the 
English version changes its license too.

- not necessary because these guides have never been included in a 
release of OpenOffice and are not officially part of the project, and 
these would be the cases where license incompatibility matters. So if 
you wish to update/translate them, nothing changed due to the OpenOffice 
codebase license change.
