I am involved in the RLUG community since it was created ( '98) and most
of the people I know would rather read the original. But if you have the
time to invest in translations, maybe this will change.

There is a long debate around that. As long as a whole page is written
in one style only ( either with diacritics everywhere or with none ) you
have my support. Personally I usually avoid diacritics because in many
cases I had bad experience when reading pages which included them, due
to missing fonts on the rendering side. Not to mention the large use of
wrong characters ( ş instead of the correct one, ș)

Sure, by all means.
