Welcome Maxim!

I'm not very familiar with the translation process and I hope others
will fill in the blanks.

This thread might be an interesting read for you:
It explains the way the repository is set up to allow translations
of the various versions of the book to happen in parallel.

I guess a good first step for you would be to familiarise yourself
with the book building process described here:

After that, you could send a small patch that starts translating the
version of the book you'd like to translate.

I'm not sure which is better -- starting a new translation of the 1.7
or trunk version of the book or updating the existing Russian
translation of the 1.4 version. I guess you'll have to make up
your own mind about that.

That's all I can say right on the topic right now. If you have any further
questions please ask. I hope I myself or others will be able to answer them.
