I use docbook2man to create man pages.
If there are better tools (not ideas) for transforming a docbook file to a man page I will certainly have a look.
Some casual poking around the Internet leads me to believe that the
DocBook XSL stylesheets seem to be a better-supported solution than
docbook2man. For example, I created a simple DocBook-formatted man page
lang="ru" attribute set on the root element. I then
manpage.docbook, and the resulting troff source contains Russian
section headings (although I cannot speak at all to their accuracy, not
being able to speak Russian and all). Any incompleteness or inaccuracy in
particular l10n should be fixed through the DocBook XSL stylesheets
Granted, after generating the UTF-8 troff source, I was unable to actually view the Russian headings in a formatted man page, but that's a different story...
