I agree that focusing translation targets is a good idea, but
I think how to choose main targets varies across languages.
We don't necessarily choose targets as I18N team as a whole.
It depends on translator interests, community needs and so on.
The installation guide is updated per cycle, so if most operators
can read English document it is not so useful to spend time to translate it.

A case of Japanese community, translators depend on translator
interests in general,
but some translation efforts on Horizon, Operation Guide, Security Guides are
announced and discussed in the local mailing list as call for

You have a chance to include your language translation into Horizon release
after the release of Juno. We have a plan to update translations on each
stable update release. From our past experience the first stable update for Juno
will be about two months after the release. More exact date will be clear after
Kilo Summit November. Thus I would suggest to continue the work even if
it is not in time for Juno release.
