I don't think there are any truly elegant solutions - only less awkward
ones ...

The database needs to be multi-lingual then. Either with a "language"
column or separate tables for the languages. Whatever fits your model
better (usually the former, I guess).

And stuff like "Select Type" will then either be part of that table or
part of a global repository of standard texts.
