Loading a simple tab delimited text file in preOpenStack is one way.
Column 1 could contain object names or IDs, column 2 would be the labels in
the default language, column 3 would be those labels in another language,
and so on.  Allow row 1 to be the language names with default language
abbreviations in parentheses (en) (ch) (fr) etc.  You can use the first row
to populate a language choice menu.  And the best part is that you (or the
end user) can easily add a language, even Klingon, outside of the
application using a simple text editor.
