He or she clicks the "Add language" button, then asks the Japanese translator to insert all texts, of course the translator will use the appropriate date and currency formats and all that. AFAICS numbered lists will be the only place where i18n problems occur that require an intervention of the web designer.

If your CMS can magically change the currency and everything, it
should be able to magically add styles for the lists just as well.  It
has to magically add styles based on language to handle RTL anyway,
after all.
