Hi all; this feature is now implemented in the latest Publican source, 
and I've rebuilt the Fedora documentation site to use it. Any books that 
we published for a particular Fedora release now appear under an 
"untranslated" heading an all languages other than English, with links 
to the English versions of the documents.

You can translate "untranslated" into your language (together with other 
parts of the navigation iframe such as "collapse all", "map", 
"statistics" etc), in Transifex here: 
(unfortunately, for technical reasons, we have not yet made the "Search" 
button translatable).

Publican also now uses the translated titles of documents wherever 
available; I'm gradually rebuilding docs to use this feature and hope to 
have this finished soon. At the moment, some translated docs still show 
their English titles in some languages.

Both these features in Publican came about because of feedback from the 
Fedora Localization team over the past few weeks -- thanks very much for 
the suggestions!
