That's what I tried to suggest :-)  You name your product once, human 
readable or not, no requirements besides uniqueness.  Then you 
'localize' it to English, and user visible 'translation' can be changed 
at any time.

Today this is done via templates.  But can be implemented on database 
level, it was once discussed to some extent.
