Hi Martin,
this is a common issue, especially for other cadastral and gazetteer
plugins. I understand in these cases the requirement may seem odd, but
generally the extra work to make a plugin international is quite limited
(how many strings do you have?), and will make reuse of the code, when
needed, much easier, so I'd gently push in that direction.
All the best.
