  | Yes, exactly. Have one synonym for each local name. Just require that
  | the English choice always exists.

And the original problem remains ... what is "the English choice" ??

Handling in other languages is best done by the users of those
languages who know what they need, rather than by us ... we'd mostly be just
guessing.   As long as the names remain reasonably stable (which
we really want for other reasons in any case) making a script to translate
what's there into anything else that works on your local system should be
just plain trivial.
