At present the manual is the text file geany.txt if I see this right?
Why not just create files geany-es.txt, geany-de.txt and so on? Writing
in reST shouldn't be a problem for the translators, is it? When using
the current geany.txt as basis, you would just have to change the text
and save it as geany-cc.txt (where cc is your countrycode).

Maybe the current geany.txt could be renamed to geany-en.txt so that the
geany.txt will be the index-file you were talking about.

Translators could just begin to write their geany-cc.txt and send it to
Frank or this list, and when something changes on the files, send a
patch accordingly. This is how translations for Geany works at present
and I don't think it's necessary to change it much, unless Frank feels
too stressed with applying patches. :)
