Hello Yikei Lu
Welcome in Mageia teams !
I think that Rémi forgot to mention also the documentation part to 
It contains the Installer help text, which are accessible during the 
installation, and we are working on help to Mageia Control Centre.

Available : http://doc.mageia.org/
Work in progress : http://docteam.mageia.nl/en/MCC/content/

Rémi, you can specify your priority about the documentation translation.
