Yes, in this case we could add the Languages template to the category 
pages to help navigation back to English, just to see what other 
articles are available. Like this one:

Note, that this will initially create a lot of extra categories with 
very few articles. I don't know how this whole idea would work, maybe we 
could give it a try. Just make sure the /xx categories are NOT added to 
English categories either (no articles, no categories of other language 
will be in the English ones). E.g. if you want "Audio/es" subcategory, 
then put it in "GTA02 Hardware/es"

This would make it easier to stay in "/es" content while navigating and 
ignore all English.

Brenda, what do you think? (You maintain some translations.)

Hm, I think Dolfje already started this change.

I think we wanted to make some category rearranging, so we will need to 
edit a lot more categories if we change them after THIS language change.
