well, on the site you linked above, they write
Squash TM and other modules

Squash TM is the central element of the Squash toolset. It interacts 
with :

    Squash TA for the automation part (run of automated tests 
campaign and consolidation of results),
    Squash Data for data management (automatic injection of data set 
for manual test)
    Squash SC for the management of planning and resources.
, so I think, we will need at least SC and Data ... ;)

Well, yes ... But this documentation is for devs, who want to help 
developing Squash TM, not for for users, who want to translate their 
tests in different languages ... ;)

Yes, please :)
