I can try to work out i18n, of course.

Guidelines are a must-have, I agree with you. My current template
includes some short tutorials on how to setup and write in the wiki.
Of course, this is work in progress and needs to be improved a lot.

And via the github editor, as others have pointed out!

I don't think one has to update 10 pages at once with _much_ content.
Maybe some linking fixes if a topic gets moved to a sub-page or
something, but I don't think there will be patches with
content-changes over 10 pages at once.
