I've done localization with Locale::Maketext, and its Locale::Maketext::Lexicon component. That takes a fair bit more work, but it uses external (non Perl) files, and allows a bit more control, including paramerized texts. The advantage: you can add additional languages by adding .po files with translations (i.e., using GNU gettext). The intent was to make it possible for non-programmers to localize systems, i.e., contracting it out. For a few locales it might not be worth it, but for large-scale internationalization it almost certainly is. 

All the best
