I'm experimenting with `org-link-set-parameters' to create multilingual

the export to LaTeX with babel and csquotes packages, I also want extend
support for HTML and odt output. I leave here some sketches.

Are you intentionally avoiding macros {{{lang(ru, текст)}}}? It seems, you are abusing links a bit. Though it allows to hide "target" part and thus to reduce "noise" in the text. On the other hand, links may be broadly considered as customizable element ("interactive" property is not necessary for such snippets) since there are no other similar objects in Org syntax. One problem is support in 3rd party tools: pandoc, various renderers, e.g. (ruby?) on github.

Another issue is that someone will almost immediately want to put such quote inside link or vice versa to make some fragment of a quote a regular link. A workaround is possible: lang:de?href=https%3A%2F%2Forgmode.org%2F with some code for handling of unescaped target. I expect complains that it is not user-friendly to require splitting fragment at the borders of inner link. Org does not support nested objects of the same type.

or explicitly preceded by
a "!": "!german" (the reason for the latter is that in babel we can
define new languages):

Unsure that ODT and HTML allows to define languages. I would consider some lisp structures describing mapping of customizable languages codes to some set of properties.
