Hi Yanbo,

Translations are an interesting case - some of the tutorial was also
translated into Japanese once, but this work often goes out of date :(
Using LaTeX it would be possible to embed alternative versions
into the same file - even at a chapter or section level (you can have
conditional blocks with if statements - so new sections could be in
English only initially while waiting for translation). I don't think you
can do this with Sphinx - or can you?


P.S. The source files for the Chinese translation is here, plus a port
of the LaTeX tutorial into *.rst:
