This only works if there is only one translator for all announcements
for the same language. If announcements are translated by two or more
translators, we need a "TRANSLATOR_NAME" and "TRANSLATION_EMAIL" for
each announcement, with different field names. This will add additional
work and complexity, from my point of view. On the other hand, there
aren't mentions to authors in webpages, so neither will be to
translators, IMHO
