Yes! It might be useful!

Yes. We'll try to make terminology mapping list.  Probably, we'll
refer JLreq's terminology[1] at first.

In addition, we want use this translation[2] as a translation base,
whose sentences are natural Japanese compared to the other one.
If it's OK, I'll try to have contact with the translator.

[2] refers to a bit old spec, we try to rewrite the different point.

I'm not sure where we can raise this translation project in Japanese.
