Are you intentionally avoiding macros {{{lang(ru, текст)}}}? It seems, 
you are abusing links a bit. Though it allows to hide "target" part and 
thus to reduce "noise" in the text. On the other hand, links may be 
broadly considered as customizable element ("interactive" property is 
not necessary for such snippets) since there are no other similar 
objects in Org syntax. One problem is support in 3rd party tools: 
pandoc, various renderers, e.g. (ruby?) on github.

Another issue is that someone will almost immediately want to put such 
quote inside link or vice versa to make some fragment of a quote a 
regular link. A workaround is possible: 
lang:de?href=https%3A%2F%2Forgmode.org%2F with some code for handling of 
unescaped target. I expect complains that it is not user-friendly to 
require splitting fragment at the borders of inner link. Org does not 
support nested objects of the same type.

Unsure that ODT and HTML allows to define languages. I would consider 
some lisp structures describing mapping of customizable languages codes 
to some set of properties.
