Short introduction about myslef: I am more a developer. I've done some
Axiom hacking two years ago, and I'm still interested in very specific
Axiom parts (./configure script). I'm a friend of Frédéric Lehobey and
this is him who interested me in Axiom.

Regarding translation of Axiom, you should coordinate with Frédéric
Lehobey. In fact, Frédéric is looking at a way to translate the Axiom
book, which is a bit different (and more ambitious!) than the
translation of Axiom user interface. You should definitely discuss
with him.

Not of I could think of. But I don't know all the latex world.

If you want a quick introduction to LaTeX, I would advise you to read
this small book (128 p.):
LaTeX pour l'impatient

It Latex syntax but the macro used are not standard LaTeX ones
