DIN NA 105-00-06 issues the following comment on this issue:

Within the German standardization organization DIN the working group NA
105-00-06 deals with language resources as being used in natural language
processing (NLP) and the standardization of procedures and data formats for
these purposes. We strongly support the inclusion of the translate-attribute
natively embedded into HTML 5, as this attribute will provide numerous benefits
for NLP. We expect an increased quality of various NLP applications, including
named entity recognition, syntactic processing, and machine translation if the
correct translation attribute is being used in web pages. We expect the correct
use of the translation attribute only if it is a standard attribute in HTML 5
and not a proprietary or customized extension. For this reason we advocate the
inclusion at this point, as the development of HTML 5 provides the historic
opportunity to provide for localization and the NLP requirements by the
addition of this attribute.
