Yes, that's what I meant.

Duplicating the glossary into languages directories would be complicated
and not clean, so let's reley on FIXME comments added.
Speaking of, I'm not fluent enough in vocals vocabulary nor in English
to add good definitions for some vocal terms in the glossary, so I leave
this stuff up to somebody else; I hope there is somebody on this list
that can do it...

Of course. I have planned to add a translation status page that would
report in tables which sections are translated, who
translated/polished/updated them and how up-to-date they are. However,
it's better not to make current translations status publicly available,
until some sections (at least tutorial, pitches, rhythms and a part of
learning manual) are completely revised in Englsih and translated.
