Hi Horace,
We do newsletter sending with direct_mail in two languages too, and it works fine. The way we do it:

Create a site, and a normal langage translation (alternative page language). You chose the page which should be send in the navigation menu (choose "Internal Pages"). 
In step 2  you can edit the options of the page to be send. There is the point "Parameters, HTML:". Here xou can use the standart typo3 language variable. For me it looks as follow:

- we use L as language parameter.
in the field "Parameter, HTML" we insert:

- " " (blank) for an English Newsletter (default language)

- "&L=1" for a German Newsletter (Language in Typo3 registerred as L=1) 

So we can decide which issue of the same page we want to send. For the registration we use direct_mail_subscription, but this is not important. The main part is that you need two sysfolders/Groups/Lists, seperated by language.

Maybe I could give you a hint,
