Hi, someone already is maintaining a Brazilian/Portuguese translation
of the man page, but that's managed completely outside of the FFmpeg
project, and so you could similarly, publishing for example the doc in
some website and keeping it synched whenever documentation is updated

Or (yes that would be better), you could propose to add a Chinese man
page to the project and volunteer to maintain it, the problem with
this is that we lack some system to deal with more than one
language. You may find some ideas in how Mplayer manages all this, and
maybe propose something similar.
