Your "localizable sentences" idea reminds me of telegraph companies
that used to have a number of common sentences that could be
transmitted in morse code by number. In India you could have telegrams
containing such sentences delivered in any of the major Indian
regional languages.

This was a good idea in the days of the low-bandwidth telegraph - but,
as Ken suggested, with modern technology there are now far more
sophisticated ways of accomplishing the same sort of thing.
