Licenses need to be normative.  For something "easy to 
understand" there are various other resources to explain details 
of various licenses, including Wikipedia.

Yes.  There is no need to translate it as it can be easily 
understood by any person even if he/she don't know English, and it 
will require resources much like any other translation.

I think it's not going to work.  We maintain Russian version of 
CHANGES only because many of the developers are Russians 
(including me) and can more or less easily write them while 
releasing a new version.

We've already tried to maintain translations of the nginx.org site 
to various languages.  The problem is that translations are 
[almost] not refreshed after an initial translation is done and 
quickly become stale, resulting in negative net effect.
