There are two distinct problems here:

1) Documentation so developers who know C but not English have an easier time
working with the kernel. (Again, if you translate it, send it to me and I'll
put it on the web. After OLS, though. :)

2) Some kind of "language X patch maintainer", a bilingual person who can
accept patches from people who don't speak English, submit them to the
mailing list, and pass comments back and forth until issues with the patch
are resolved. So there could be a chinese patch maintainer, a spanish patch
maintainer, etc.
