How about putting your strings in modules 'strings_en.py', 'strings_de.py'
then doing something simple like the following:
>> mylocale = 'de'
>> strings = __import__('strings_%s' % mylocale)
>> f = Frame(title=strings.main_frame_title)
With newer Pythons you can probably use the 'locale' module to handle the
locale strings nicely.
