I think, the use of string-variables on top of each jsp-file / template-file
would make translations of templates into other languages much more easier.

This an example on how to use variable for making translations of template-files easier.
The sample used the default LeftMenu.jsp file.

eg: the former string "No LeftMenu!" was replaced by "<%= langNoLeftMenu %>".
The result will be "Es wurde noch kein Menü erstellt".

  // Setting Language
  // ================
  // Setting a language or translating templates can be made much more easier by
  // using string-variables. 
  // ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
  // "No LeftMenu!"
  String langNoLeftMenu = new String("Es wurde noch kein Menü erstellt");
  // "Please make one."
  String langPleaseMakeOne = new String("Bitte erstellen Sie ein Menü: ");
  // "G'day."
  String langGDay = new String("Herzlich wilkommen");
  // "Set your name in"
  String langSetYourNameIn = new String("Wählen Sie einen Benutzernamen");
  // "UserPreferences"
  String langUserPreferences = new String("Benutzereinstellungen");
