well I think 1st we should translate man pages that
cover the system commands and admin and file types
all of them comes with all distro and all of them
comes as compressed plain text files we can translate
every thing that does not begin with .(DOT)
man pages is a text file with mark up like .TH .TE .PP
just skip them when you translate
no need to have the xml of the original man pages
