Since you are at the point of having a patch, the ideal way forward is to
open it as a pull request on github.

That will make it possible for everyone to evaluate how invasive the
changes would be. This is a really tricky cost-benefit analysis: we
undeniably want to make IPython friendlier to non-English speakers (as I
should be, given English isn't even my second language...). But at the same
time, I worry a lot about how intrusive these i18n changes can potentially
be into the entire codebase, so we'll have to tiptoe very carefully into
this one...
