No, please DO NOT translate the text in the URL itself.

You should of course change the page title in the *content* of the page, but
the URL should be the same as the English version but with the language code
extension.  This will make it MUCH easier to see at a glance which languages
a particular page has been translated into.  It may at some point even make
it easier to automatically provide different language versions of a page
depending on the user's browser configuration.
