[thelist] Multilingual CMS suggestion?

Hi all,
I'm looking for a CMS that supports content in several languages
(English, Dutch, Danish and German (possibly Hebrew which would be
challenging in it's 'right to left' orientation)), with a language
switch on document level.
So the site would run at www.client.com/en/ with English content, and
www.client.com/nl/ with Dutch content. When a document is available in
the other language, the page would feature a hyperlink to the page in
that language, else to that language root.
My search so far learned me that if they mention being multilingual,
it means you can choose one from several, not that content in four
languages can happily exist on the same site (or they are not explicit
in stating/demonstrating this).

Site will be running on LAMP (FedoraCore 5, Apache 2.2.2, MySQL
5.0.27, PHP 5.1.6) and clean URL's with mod_rewrite is preferred.

I do not mind (steep) learning curves, proving the system can do what
it is intended to do. If you happen to have experience with, or know
about a system that neatly does the trick, then please drop me a note.
In the meantime I will continue my search.
