Translate a unique product identifier to different languages

Hi,

We have our shop in central Europe, meaning different languages around.
For different countries we have different languages on the product labels, meaning different SKU & EAN.
On the website we translate it, currently using Translate & Adapt.

My question is, how do we technically identify this difference in the orders? So that if someone orders in German they'll get the German product.
I really wish to avoid create different product in the backend, the extra complexity to handle that would be above our capacity. Just having a translateable unique identifier would solve it I believe.

Our warehouse normally use SKU as unique identifier, however I haven't found any app that allows translation of SKU, or GTIN (Translate and Adapt has a field for GTIN, but only one no matter how many variations a product has). We could choose a different unique identifier, however we have to be sure that it'll never change if so.

No ideas?
This must be a very common thing for any shop selling items to more countries.
Every country need a label in the local language and therefor has a different EAN & SKU.

How's it otherwise solved?
