One place you can start is here, although this does not specifically involve
the use of Unicode:
Basically, the process I've used is to keep all translated material outside
of the stack in separate files, and tag each text string in the documents
with an ID tag so you can swap out language text in the stack at will via
the ID numbers.
There is also pretranslated database offered by Rob Cozens that might help:
