The short answer is: no, not yet.

The longer answer is we still need to investigate contentLanguage (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Language#Page_content_language) in Flow. Gathering use-cases now to help us decide whether that's a high-priority task would be great :)

A related recent request is "Please make it possible to translate (and read translations of) someone else's message" at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:S0pyyysz0qgficxs . Maybe Flow can show that translations are available using a special template without having to dynamically re-parse a post. Although detecting there's a translation available is itself dynamic.
