your description leads me to a wrong conclusion

I thought you have a gerneral description and unique files to download in 
the next paragraph.
this could be done in the way I described:

1 description language1		type: Text(with image)
  1a description language 2	type: Text(with image)	
  1b description language 3	type: Text(with image)
  1c description language 4	type: Text(with image)
  1d description language 5	type: Text(with image)
  1e description language 6	type: Text(with image)

2 filelink [all] languages	type: file links

in 2 normaly the filename is shown, which is equal to all languages

what you want is a translation of the filelinktext, no filename.
This can be done only by an extension which manages the handling of 
description for files 
you either can use DAM for the whole installation. 

because using DAM changes the behaviour of your installation dramtically,
I would prefer an extension especially for downloads, which manages the 
translation of the description while using only one filereference. search 
in TER for an suitable extension
