At first that sounded like an ideal answer, but I can see a gotcha:
suppose the translation's author's name contains some characters that
don't convert to the database encoding. I suppose that would result in
failure, when we'd prefer it not to. A single-purpose string could be
documented as "whatever you translate this to should be pure ASCII,
never mind if it's sensible".
