this blog from Stack Overflow about the introduction of their

issue, and some very interesting discussion points:

in short: increasing the localization of documentation for non-English
speaking developers increases the visibility of those developers to
the overall community, and that is a good thing.

For Stack Overflow it was more for writing. Here for GObject properties 
it is only for reading purposes.

from a library maintainer perspective, I'd probably remove the
localization around the "blurb" field — or even set it to NULL, given
that it's pretty much pointless. I'd still keep the localization of
the nick: a GUI half in english and half in the user's language would
look pretty poor to me.

Sounds like a good plan.

Thank you for your response.
