Hi Seb,
1. You could use an extension for content inheritance, but as I gather  
your objective this solution would be quite unelegant - you'd have that  
content area all the time although you'd use only on your homepage, I  
2. To get a multilingual footer with an ancillary navigation you should  
use a TypoScript object, like so:
             <field_nav_x type="array">
                 <tx_templavoila type="array">
                     <title>Nav extra</title>
                     <sample_data type="array">
                         <numIndex index="0"></numIndex>
Now you need to define that object 'lib.nav.x' in a TypoScript template  
that is referenced (basis template) in your main template. To get the  
links you use simple TEXT objects with the typolink function - refer to  
TSref for those. For site wide multilingual text I use constants.

Hope that helps,
