This is unsolveable so it's not sensible to wait for it to be solved.
Anything that leads to having hundreds of different on-disk directory
names for "standard" directories would be a support nightmare, precisely
because they would not longer be standard.

Just use English file names for these directories, just like we already
use English names for /Desktop, for /home, and for a thousand other
directories and files. It only affects use of the command-line terminal,
because GNOME and KDE and XFCE can show the translated name in the UI
instead of the English.

You already can't use a command-line shell without knowing lots of
English, and this won't make that much worse.
