Present metadata tiles in active language

When you create an index in a GLI language interface, the index titles are proposed from the translation of the metadata set in that language if it exists. But a distrubing problem occurs if the user changes the language interface in Greenstone, as the metadata titles in the original language (not the interface language) are displayed for doing searches. I suggest that if the index title matches the name of a metadata element in the language version of the metadata set used in creating the collection (I assume that the language of creation is stocked somewhere?), then Greenstone should always display the translated metadata title name if the the interface is changed (assuming that the relevant metadata set element titles have been translated into the active language). But if the user has changed the name in the original language, he/she would have to add the intended translation to list of translated terms if the title is to be changed upon changing the interface. Same thing for the classifier titles. If we don't do this, perhaps the most important part of the user language interface will be in the wrong language.
