The option "Translate artist names to this locale where possible" should be extended to allow several locales to be selected (with order like e.g. in Firefox). Currently only one locale is allowed.
Artist http://musicbrainz.org/artist/af5499e0-8a48-4a53-bedd-3c4c67e688b6 has a Japanese standardized name and an English alias "Masuda Junichi". No German alias is set. Now if I set my locale to "German", I will end up with "増田順一" as artist-name which I can not read at all.
A list of other locales to be used as fall-back would give me the English alias, which I could read.
