This sounds perfectly pathetic.

Webmasters typically put web pages into a source-code control system, 
so that you can't loose old revisions.  If you use CVS, or the more
modern/more hip subversion, you can delegate web site maintenance to 
numerous trusted colleagues. 

Over at, we set up a title bar across the top,
with multiple langages indicated. Different authors get access to
different language versions to do translations whenever they get 
around to it (although it seems that besides french and german, 
the rest have not gotten around to it ...).
