I think now apt search in the translated description, and if a package
is not transleted in the english version. 

But apt use LANG.

LANG=C apt-cache search XXX
search only in the english description.

LANG=de apt-cache search XXX
search in the german translation and in the english text if

But maybe we need something like a button in synaptic etc. to select
the language.
