Correct. What you'll receive is a concatenation of all of the title text. I suppose you could use a single label reference, and a script could update the idref depending on the language in use, but even if this worked, it would be much more complicated than it ought to be.

SVG should solve this problem. If that doesn't happen, ARIA could add yet another property to carry multilingual labels - but not within the scope of ARIA 1.1 core.
