I don't know who could do this (if I had the time or knowledge maybe...), but it is becoming increasingly imperative for OJS to be truly multilingual, not only for the interface, but for the content as well.
Especially for the configuration items, which are dynamic "static" content, which will assist readers and authors in the process. Having the interface separate the content will enable the editor to add the necessary content to allow and make it easier for foreign authors to submit their work.
This would basically require an extra column "language" in the content tables, and each sql command would need to have a WHERE language = $lang statement.
Another issue is the default_locale setting of PHP, which should be dynamically set by the language selection, so that date fields would reflect the current language in the server.
Is this too difficult to accomplish?

This is under development and will be part of OJS 2.2, thanks to a very ambitious contributor.
