The only way i know (but i think perhaps it isn't the best)
is this http://i18n.kde.org/translation-howto/doc-translation.html

If we want to apply this workflow to docbook website sites, 
i think we must to follow the next process:

1. create docbook-original.xml files and layout.xml file.
2. generate docbook.po (xml2po) files and translate them (trasnlators task)
3. generate docbook-translated.xml files (po2xml).
4. generate html files with xslt processor, hacking layout.xml to 
   make the new docbook-translated.xml files.

This 4th step will be as automatic as possible. At the end of that we will have 
all the pairs (if we only are translating to a second language) of html files:
 file1.html.en file1.html.es
(sorry but i don't know if i'm explaining well what i want to say, perhaps i
need a best translation too ;)
