I would prefer if you kept the old boolean "translation" config option and 
added a new one for your purpose (e.g. translation-language). This for 2 

1 - Disabling the translation with a boolean option is more user-friendly 
than setting the language to "C".

2 - Changing the type of a config variable breaks the compatibility with 
current config files. People who already have a config file will have to 
delete it or explicitly change the "translation" value otherwise 
translation won't work anymore for them (0 or 1 isn't a valid language).
