With perl it's simple enough to roll your own, which is more or less
what I did with my sanitizer (internationalization is just part of the
configuration file).

Speaking as a translator (I've been part of the Icelandic KDE

will provide potential translators with a familiar interface - which
is of course A Good Thing(tm).
