That's much too often to bother the translators not working on such 
content.  The front page should only need updating when its own 
content is changed.

Yes, it's fine to continue using the English title if there's no 
translation available.  I believe we have, or had, a feature to only 
translate the news item title, but that seems misleading to the

How about a front page tag in the news items themselves?  That's 
assuming that the hand-picking is taking place when the news file is 
added.  I don't know how get_recent_list works, but if it can read 
more tags then that might be the easiest solution, as it for front 
page use could skip items lacking the tag, and the translator workflow 
would be unchanged.
