Yes and no.

We have this problem with our own web site, and we solve it by:
* having all text in "include" files (separate to the "code")
* all database content also has a "language" field
* having "magic branches" for each language

Magic branches are a feature unique to CVSNT (free, GPL, Unix, Linux, Windows 

This way the core parts of the site are common to all languages and only the 
translated pages are effectively on a branch.  In fact if a language hasn't 
translated a page and that page is updated it continues to be updated on that 

For more info about CVSNT please refer to the CVSNT web site and mailing list /
