After some details by email, i marked this page for translations, we can add a link for "view in your language". Regards

To give a professional aspect to our translated pages, the principle to tend to -when a page is created- is to keep the complete language coherence all along it. This has two main advantages: 1) maintenance: it shows no parts have been forgotten by translators 2) readers can enjoy the articles in their own language and pleasantly follow the links in a transparent way (thanks to Special:MyLanguage) when target pages are aligned.

I have no objection about target pages left in ENglish because we must restrict since translation itself is a hudge work and although of the system open structure, volunteers are higly appreciated.

On the other side what is translated is a mirror of what is on the EN page (comments apart). We cannot conceive translated pages to have hidden parts visible/understandable only by EN readers. In this case let us put the text into comments - but for everyone.

Thank you all for your work and support.
