Yes, this option was considered but nut pursued probably due to the lack 
of translators. ccHost, the software we are using for the website allows 

In the administration interface we have the possibility to set the 
language (now is en_US but we have a list of options) and also the 
option "Allow User to Set Language" which comes with a warning "This 
feature is  EXPERIMENTAL and should not be used in production 
installation. It is here for development purposes only" - but note that 
we are not up to the latest version of ccHost.

So for a translated interface probably the best thing is to contribute a 
translation upstream at ccHost.

However, I have no idea how a translated interface would deal with news 
items on the front page, clipart descriptions and so on.
