That's exactly the way I handle it. Of course, I wont stop developping the language just because I translated something. I tend to call older versions of language 'X' 'Ancient X'. :-) I don't give version numbers... Relay 10 is a good example -- Qthyn|gai changed quickly. Relay 11 is an example with a grammar mistake, but tha's a different story...
