Hi -- 

I believe it should be possible to write Texinfo documents in Chinese.
It's true you will not be able to get PDF or DVI output, since there is
no support for CJK in texinfo.tex, but that doesn't matter for Octave
purposes, which is all online anyway.

There are some useful refinements to Unicode support in the forthcoming
release, but I *think* (don't know for sure) it should be possible to do
it even with texinfo-4.13.

At some point (later) it will be possible to output a LaTeX document
from Texinfo source, and then the LaTeX CJK support can be used for

As for the general process of the translation project, it appears to me
it is all laid out for Octave on the web page you cited,  Some octave help list
should be able to assist further if needed.

Glad you're interested, and happy translating,
