This is true, and Jd recently sent a mail on foundation-l about that [1].
See also [2]. I think it is a good idea to set up a team dealing with
cleaning the foundation wiki. Of course, this team must be multilingual to
be efficient.

If help if needed for translation, I'm sure you can ask on translators-l;
people work on meta, then the team members check the translation and update
content on the foundation wiki.
