alt text in 2 languages?

Hi everyone,

I have a doubt: how shall I threat an Alt text which is half in Italian
and half in English?

The case is the following: a company has it's name in Italian (is a
short sentence) and its payoff is instead in english. So inserting the
Alt my doubt was: how can i do the best thing to ensure the best
accessibility? I guess the span lang attribute doesn't work properly in
this case, eventuaally with an xml language declaration? anyone has
already faced and fixed this matter?

Thx:)

Pat

Ps. it'd be too easy to change the Alt, the Custumer absolutely wants
to keep both the name and company payoff in some images and i have to
find out the most suitable solution to combine two langiuages in an alt
attribute.
