I agree. I think that translating the content might not be the best thing. That 
would almost be like translating subject lines and the body of emails in IMP. 
It would be reasonable to allow language preference of the system like 'Search 
Tickets', 'Create Ticket', etc. I believe the types and states of tickets are 
like a subject of an email and are a part of the content and should be native 
to how they were originally written and not translated.
