Dear Yevgeny, dear translators

The .html extensions have indeed been removed to better ensure Content  

If you're interested to know more about extensionless pages, you can have  
a look at
   http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI#remove for example.

To reply to your questions, the links have not changed. For example /maps  
is still /maps.html and so on.
When you copy a page in order to translate it, you may save it as .html if  
that is more convenient for you, or not. What matters is that you save  
your translation as .html (or not).

I'm sorry as I'm explaining this badly... The server will add the proper  
extension(s) automatically. This allows, for example, to replace  
extensions as wanted, without having to maintain a list of links and/or  
change links.

For example, imagine you have data in the formats of .html, .txt and .rdf,  
if you use an extensionless link, you will be able to serve either html,  
txt or rdf, based on what the client expects.

I hope this helps.
