Translated PerlMonks FAQby demerphq (Chancellor)

Hi Folks. Theres a bit of debate about how to handle translations of the PerlMonks FAQ. Currently have a bunch of translations that monsieur_champs did to Portugese. Overtime I expect well get more of them and for different languages. The question comes as to how to link them through. My preference, mostly because the translations arent a complete set, is that each English FAQ should have a link to any translations next to it. So for the current ones we have there would be a little PT link, for German it would be DE, French would be FR etc. (Note that the FAQ itself is essentially an idenx of links.) You can see an idea of what I mean here
However it seems that some dont like this idea. Im not sure exactly what they would propose as a replacment but they dont like the idea of translation links. Ill leave it to those with strong feelings on this to post proposals.
Anyway, what are your feelings on this? How would you do it? Some things that your suggestion should take in mind: its unlikely we will get a full set of translations for any language any time soon. Outside of a few languages it will be difficult for the SiteDocClan to update the translations without help when the english changes.
Thanks for your thoughts.
