Hi J-F,

With the effort of China Sakai community, we now have a nearly 100% 
zh_CN translation (except OSP tools) in our branch [1].

And according to my review, the Pearson's translation of zh_CN is 
incomplete and have some mistake.

I plan to commit our translation (also with the help doc) to JIRA in 
this summer. So I think it's no need to merge the Pearson's zh_CN
