Multiple translators

Hi Silje,

Having been in that position as a translator a couple of times, I think 
we put all our names in the field at that time.
This of course isn't ideal if you have two or more translators that 
share the work equally.

However, it is the same with the original_author field - no real-world 
archetype has very been created by one person only.

Therefore, we have introdued the idea of other_contributors already 
where editors, reviewers etc. are given credit.
This is where potentially other translators could be added as well, e.g. 
if there is a prime/lead translator and several who check the translation.

BTW, for this checking translations, there is also the possibility to 
conduct translation reviews in CKM (ideally after the content has been 
published or it will be too burdensome I believe).
