How about taking a step back and making it more generic?
template <typename Trans>
append_column_translated(modelcolumn, const Trans& translator =

template <typename T>
struct NumericTranslatorSample {
NumericTranslatorSample(int precision = 0) : _prec(precision) {}
    string ConvertToRep(const T& val) {
	stringstream s;
	s << setw(_prec) << val << ends;
	return s.str();
    T ConvertFromRep(const string& str) {
	stringstream s(str);
	T val;
	s >> setw(_prec) >> val;
	return val;
    int _prec;

TreeModelColumn<int> foo;
TreeModelColumn<float> bar;
TreeModelColumn<complex> baz;
TreeModelColumn<MyType> whatever

append_column_translated<NumericTranslatorSample<int> >(foo);
append_column_translated<NumericTranslatorSample<float> >(bar,
append_column_translated<NumericTranslatorSample<complex> >(baz);

This is what I had in mind in cojunction with the lexical_cast<> code.
