[Localization] Localized user manuals in Qtassistant

the Glabels project [1] is in the migration process from GTK-3.x to
Qt-5.x. We are looking for a way to display the user help.

Qtassistant could be a possible solution, but it can't handle
localized user manuals out-of-the-box. Of course, currently there's no
need to have such a feature, because even the docs shipped with Qt
itself are neither translated nor translatable at all. I've already
filed a bug [2], but got no answer for more than three months.

Our user manual is now translated into many languages, and we will not
get rid of this way to reach many more people than with an English
manual only. Is there a way or at least a workaround to let
Qtassistant register and display the localized manual? Many thanks in
advance for your ideas and suggestions.
