The i18n of knewstuff had some bugs, due to the current freeze I've appended a 
proposed patch. It changes the search a bit:
- first, try to lookup the data in the user's desktop language
- if not present, try the entry without language attribute, which is the 
default entry (if it exists)
- if still not present, use any language

I know this is still not the best way of doing things. It should probably use 
the whole list of languages the user has configured.

Only the summary, payload and preview have support for i18n. The data 
title/name itself cannot (yet) be translated. I'm not sure this can be added 
in a way it doesn't break BC. But I can see the need for this entry to also 
have translation.

About the web interface: A user (translator role) has to specify all the 
languages that he/she speaks. Afterwards, all entries which are missing 
entries translated to those languages can be edited.
Note that since Quanta+ also started to use knewstuff, they're working on a 
much improved infrastructure. Aside from OpenPGP support (which I hope all 
knewstuff apps will get in KDE 4), Quanta is used a lot by web developers, so 
a more usable web interface is not just a pipe dream anymore...
