Is it possible to copy a course to another language?

I was thinking, that it would be nice to have a Welsh from German course. My welsh is not good enought (by far) to build the course from ground up, but I think, that it should be possible to takte the Welsh from Englisch and translate it (maybe with a little help, because it still is a lot of work). Would such a copy be possible? I know, that some part of it would need some extra work or explanations (e.g. German has no progressive forms) but it should be managable.

Each language interface is unique. There are even subtle and important details for how to teach from Language A to Language B, and the reverse course for Language B to Language A. That there are different principals that require designing the course differently.

Thanks for the replies and the links. A bit dishartening, but better stopped early than too late.

While that may be technically possible it is not something that Duo offers because it is not as simple as you imagine. Just think of Google translate and all the errors that application makes.
