I very much welcome any effort to try to do i18n for Emacs.  I must say
I find this to be an enormous effort, since it's not just translation
but also figuring out where and how to draw the line between UI and
implementation (since most of the internal details are made directly
visible in the UI via M-x, docstrings and things like that).

I encourage you to work closely with emacs-devel, making your code
available as a Bzr branch, for example, and trying to get patches
installed in the Emacs trunk as soon as they stabilize.
