This is up to you, but i think the best idea to coordinate work is to
use the Flossmanual infrastructure: you should not made an offline
translation but update regularly. I think this is better if you want
to have some immediate reward and help during your work.

Unfortunately, i could not help to much for vietnamese translation ...
Maybe i could only help during a pair session.
