I think, there is no DTD.
As you know, XML document do not need to follow a DTD.

I do not think this is workable.

  The XML exported only describes the structure of the document.
  The semantics is covered only very implicitly.

  I doubt very much that you find an easy syntactic criterion (based
  on XML structure) that distinguishes between text to be translated
  (like "title") and text that must not be touched (like "id").

Look at the internationalization tools "localizer", "ZBabel"
and the internationalization support in ZPT.
I think these are better approaches.
