is there any idea about how to translate screenshots and other
images? E.g. the ISS howto on http://www.cacert.org/help.php?id=3
Is there a way to display different images the way gettext works
or would it be easier to have an independent document for each
language.

I'm open to suggestions on this...

> or would it be easier to have an independent document for each language.

I'm guessing this might be the case with GUI screen shots...
Majority of the documentation probably won't contain images...

Quick and dirty might be solution where you encode the language in
the filename and link to the pictures as /images/foo.$LANG.jpg
But there will be a problem for missing languages as there is no
fallback like with gettext.

Another possibiliy could be to save the links directly in the .po-files
and allow the translaters to modify them if they know that there
is a localised picture.
