In my view, Chinese is not like other languages. The traditional Chinese
has numerous differences from the simplified Chinese, both in characters
and word groups. Hence it may make readers who favors traditional Chinese
feel unconfortable to read the translated content based on simplified
Chinese. So I think it's not a "volunteered" job but a meaningful thing.

Also, it is not a bad idea to bridge the gap for readers whose mother
tongue is traditional Chinese. That's the aim of the kernel documentation

translation work -- to provide as many translations as possible.
