Based on the meeting last week, this is not yet ready to be integrated to

In order to integrate with, you need first have a strings file (e.g. simple key-value JSON file with translatable strings) in a git (or other version control system) repository. The next step, in my understanding, is that you will need to create a mechanism to a) pull labels and other translatable content from the Graph definition JSON(s) to a separate file (this file can be integrated with and b) device a system that you can create localised Graph definition JSON(s) by replacing the translatable strings with their translations.
