Comment (by doktorbro):

 Let me show you my simple solution. Save the code beside as HTML file:

 <!DOCTYPE html>
 <html lang="my">
         <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"
         <title>Error international</title>
         <style type="text/css">
                 strong:lang(en) { font-weight: normal; text-transform:
 uppercase; }
                 strong:lang(he) { font-weight: bold; }
                 strong:lang(my) { font-weight: normal; color: red; }
         <div lang="en">
                 <p><strong>Error:</strong> English style is uppercase.</p>

         <div lang="he">
                 <p><strong>Error:</strong> Hebrew style is bold.</p>

                 <p><strong>Error:</strong> My style is red.</p>

 As you can see in Firefox and Chrome, the attribute ''lang'' controls the
 style of the element ''strong''. Note the line 2 where I define the
 language of the whole document. That affects my red error style only.

 Now we have to do 3 things:

 1. Use CSS element ''strong'' to mark important words, like “Error” or
 2. Define CSS depending on language of the document.
 3. Make sure display procedures are ready for CSS.
