Is there a concept of "marking a string for translation" in this syntax?
Perhaps this convention will do as a convention:

  "All strings with a @EN suffix should be translated."

I think you should extend intltool to handle this filetype, but a better
approach might be to use one of the formats that intlool already
understands, e.g. (simple) XML.

Your example might then become something like this:

| <subject name="xesam:Audio.Composer">
|   <predicate>a</predicate>
|   <object>:field</object>
|   <predicate>:of_type</predicate>
|   <object>:string</object>
|   <predicate>:has_parent</predicate>
|   <object>DC:Creator</object>
|   <predicate>:name</predicate>
|   <_object>"Composer"</_object>
|   <predicate>:description</predicate>
|   <_object>"Audio composer"</_object>
| </subject>

...but you will have to do build-time XML processing to convert the XML data
into the correct Turtle syntax.

(Oh, and in the above example the "Audio composer" sting needs a @EN prefix
as well, right?)
