I can help with the Russian translation.

My proposal would be to use Hugo + Asciidoctor. Hugo does handle
internationalization really fine and I have knowledge to automate this.

About project stepping:

First step: design a proper internationalization workflow

Second step: have a nice look and feel

Thirst step: think about how to handle the current processes existing
with Fedora Magazine.

If steps 1 and 2 are good and we publish it as an official Fedora
website, then users will be able to read translated articles.

Only then we will be able to suggest a migration from Wordpress to Hugo.
Expect a year from now.

Actions needed:

1. Set-up pipeline and automation (I can do that)

2. Someone to take care of HTML/CSS for look and feel.

3. Someone convert articles from Wordpress to asciidoc.

4. Translators ;)

I would love to see a few translators to express their interest in such
initiative, and people willing to help for steps 1/2/3.
