Listen, I don't want to start a whole thing here, but recently with the 
"terminal" package many DDs expressed a distaste for super-generic 
package names that aren't as old as the hills.  I don't know how old or 
canonical "translate" is, but it surely is a generic name.  I am merely 
passing along the fact that some people have expressed this disinterest 
in these types of names -- I suggest it humbly.  Maybe you could use a 
different name.
