Lore is just simple HTML with a few 'class' decorations for features like syntax highlighting (as you can see from the examples) so it should be easy enough to write.  If you want to write the document with Sphinx, someone on the development team would be happy to translate it manually - creating the content is much harder than writing the markup :).

there's already some commentary on that ticket explaining what needs to be done next.
