Well, this *recommended* template could substitute the current default 
which doesn't offer localized links either. An improvement is an 
improvement, and I think the improvement for users is huge.

Then it is up to the admins of each list to implement this template or 
not, to take it as is or with modifications e.g. links to Spanish 
content for your Spanish speaking list. It's just a piece of HTML to be 
pasted in a web form.

Just give me a day or so to implement feedback and clean the code, and 
then the template will be ready to be applied by list admins with a 
simple copy&paste, with optional customization.
