Absolutely!  The translated manuals should stand on their own and be
the written with your readers in mind.  Instead of pointing your
readers to the English web pages, feel free to substitute Slovenian
web pages in their place. You don't need to mention the English ones
at all if they're not helpful to your readers.

Thanks for all of the hard work that you and your team have done!
