    Hmm, I glanced at that project. It's old and seems freezed now.
    I don't know if people still have interests in the i18n of kconfig.
    If so, I think I can help with the Chinese part. ;)

    Well, in fact, we've already had some Chinese docs too. ;)
    Just have a look at Documentation/zh_CN/.

    I will take a look at the problems and see if I can help you.
