Concurrent languages

This time, I would like some input about how to approach the following situation: the UI language and the Client language.

My users can set the interface to be in the language of their choice. However, when they are producing material for a client who's language is not the same as the User's settings selection for language, how should I handle that.

 

  1. Should i put a rule that the current client language switches the entire interface and lists and labels  to the client's language.
  2. Or do I identify the fields that will display/print outputs for the client and only target these to take the client's language.

#1 seems a lot simpler to implement.

 

I do not feel strongly about either approach.

 

How do i test for the client language and implement the change automatically?

Something that detects a change of the current client and sets the UI to the client's language value?
