Good question Carlos. We (me, and other developers working on django CMS) have been discussing this at length.
The main problem is that the approach taken within django CMS doesn't lend itself to adoption outside the cms (i.e. the cms module of django CMS) application.
The multilingual solution there is pretty much baked in to the specific way that it uses placeholders, which is different from the way other applications use placeholders.
In cms, Placeholders belong to templates. Outside the cms, placeholders are in PlaceholderFields.
To me the best solution looks like django-hvad - best not because it's ready to use, but because it looks like the most promising one to work with.
Stick around, we will crack it (because we absolutely have to). I just hope it's not going to be too painful.
