Translating the contextual help is a quite subtle issue indeed, since a lot of this has been programmed in Scheme.  I recently started experimenting with documents that contain some automatically generated content.  This puts more serious constraints on the markup and the interaction with scheme, but would have the advantage that translations become easy to achieve.

Here is my idea:
use translate primitive wrap all the translatable string

provide a template tm file to generate contextual help

current status:
It is generated by TeXmacs/progs/generic/generic-doc.scm. It is programmed and fixed.
