Request forwarded on behalf of Luciano Panepucci, Editora Cubo. Articles in his journals have tables where the table caption is in both Portuguese and English, and the label appears in both languages, too. While the caption can be tagged in both languages, as in:

<table-wrap>
<label>Tabela 1</label>
<caption>
<p xml:lang="pt">Escala de valores da Análise de Processo Hierárquico</p>
<p xml:lang="en">Scale of values Analysis of Hierarchic Process</p>
...
</table-wrap>

There is no way to add the label in a second language.

See http://floram.org/files/v20n1/v20n1a04.pdf for an example.
