Selections and localization with Smarty


I'm trying to implements selection lists using Smarty and I'm aware of the {html_options}. The application must support localization (which I implemented as described in this post).

Is it possible to combine the two?

I'm currently handling it by parsing through the items with {section name=i loop=$list} and "manually" generating the HTML code (handling the translation with {eval}). I don't like the solution, but couldn't find a better way yet.

Many, many thanks!
