humm... how about turning it around. so each page gets a language tag at 
the end.

eg. /PackageManagement/Yum/FastestMirror/
and a /PackageManagement/Yum/FastestMirror/es/

would that be a better way of creating alternative pages ?

the best process, imho, is still to get the users' lang choice involved 
and just server those pages where a local translation is available, 
otherwise an English page.
