The Wiki is not the "main Fedora web page".

I believe that if you want to foster the creation and growth of local
communities and if you want to reduce language barriers,
fedora.redhat.com must offer translations for a few major languages.
Localised content, which also points users (and in particular newbies
who look for quickstart information) to the non-English mailing-lists
[1] in a really prominent place. And what was possible with
fedoraforum.org could be repeated with fedoraforum.de, for instance.

Btw, a German Fedora Wiki, albeit an unofficial one, exists already, [2].
