Translation in database

Hi folks

Is there a easy way to implement (a scalable) translation in database?

I’ve got the following database-schema:
Table 1: news (where basic news-data is stored… data,…)
Table 2: news_langs (here will the languagedata be stored)

Is there e posibility to easy join this language-data to the main-model
(news) or have I to create an additional language-model for every
translated model?
