I find a multilingual feature for Joomla!, Mambelfish. I also did a
quick install of Joomla! and it seems way too complex to me. Joomla!
is definitely not a CMS 'that just work" in the Ubuntu spirit. It
remind me of phpNuke and it's not a good thing.

Plone seems fine but I'm worried about maintenance. Plone is certainly
not hard to install and upgrade. But it doesn't look as easy as a
simple "ftp upload of a diretory (+run update scrip)" like many PHP
apps does. If some Plone (Zope) guru can handle the install and
upgrade task I'm ok with Plone. But I won't do it myself as it seems
to much work for me.

I also tried CMS Made Simple and it's very easy. The only missing
thing is multilingual support. As François S. said, the content
planned at this time is not too big for a manual sync between
different languages. But it may become too complex later.

And for the fun: I also know another CMS, Daisy
(http://www.cocoondev.org/daisy). It handle multi-language page
(document in the Daisy Jargon) and feature a full backend/frontend
separation. But it's in Java and probably too big.
