[Seaside] Multi-lingual/Multi-locale applications

Looking for advice on best way to handle following situation:

same application running with different database on different images  
on different machines
where application code is the same but some key configurations are  

such as various locale items like number formatting, currency symbol  
and large scale text changes
do to different languages being used.

i have very limited seaside and smalltalk experience right now, just  
from playing around with stuff,
but the project we are considering moving over would need to tackle  
these issues immediately.

multiple routes to obtain what we need appreciated.

our current code base ( in python ) uses a combination of translated  
templates, get text and small
conf files to handle what is needed. while not ideal, it works and  
easy to manage.

99% of the work is handled by having the different templates,  
obviously, moving to programmatic html
eliminates the ease there ( but gets rid of a maintenance headache of  
redoing the same html
across multiple templates ).
