for the curious, in perl-5.8.8 just 'pod' directory there are some 102 POD files, having word count equal to 672,608.
This means 2690 conditional pages for translation, and, when translating to Russian, if translator do his work on individual basis this will cost $10760 (counting $4 per page; translator agency will take $10 or even $15 in this case)
I wonder why http://perldoc.ru is under construction right now?
I saw some outdated translated PODs to Russian, but I can't find them right now.
By this I owe a great respect to the huge localized software like KDE or GNOME etc.
Just two kopikats.
