 A colleague of mine spent a lot of time working on an international

 I'm pretty sure that everything you want can either be done through the
 existing translation mechanisms (which aren't at all difficult for a non-
 technical user to get to grips with) or through the use of a plugins and
 themes. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be difficult to simplify down to a
 single field if that's what you wanted.
