Well, more than half of the chapters have been checked in in English.
All the remaining chapters have volunteers working on them.  

Of course, there will still be a lot of work to do to revise them and
edit them for consistency.  

It's a big job, translating a book.  And this book is over 700 pages.
But when it's done, it should make an important difference in making
OCaml easier to learn for English speakers.
