Unfortunately, "IndianRed" is so dark that it's unreadable.
Whereas "Gold" is so prefect, that I can't find a replacement.
But are translations really required?  I created a definition
that works well on all environments (I see that "gold" looks good
on a graphical terminal, but on a 256-color TTY "orange" is better).
Do you see a problem with these best-looking faces?

(defface hi-gold
  '((((min-colors 88) (type x w32 ns)) (:background "gold"))
    (((min-colors 88)) (:background "orange"))
    (((min-colors 16)) (:background "red"))
    (t (:background "red")))
  "Face for hi-lock mode."
  :group 'hi-lock-faces)

(defface hi-aquamarine
  '((((min-colors 88)) (:background "aquamarine"))
    (((min-colors 16)) (:background "blue"))
    (t (:background "blue")))
  "Face for hi-lock mode."
  :group 'hi-lock-faces)
