Multiple locale /en/home/index.action mapping with struts2

for internationalization needs in a SEO content manager software developed with struts2 and running on JBoss 5, I need to map the same package/namespace multiple times, for every language. I'd like to get a way to make different locale pages have permanent links, opposed to the struts2 way in which locale is binded in the session. Example:

The scenario is (suppose index.action is the home page/action):

I'd like the /portal package (group of struts2 actions) to be mapped not just like /portal but /en/portal, es/portal, ...
index.action must invoke the same action as content returned will be the same (exception localization, of course). I've developed an interceptor that sets locale based on that first "/en" part in the request path.

Of course I can always do:

But that means repeating the same mappings for every package.

Any idea on how to achieve this in a simpler way?

Thanks for any help/directions,
I agree. Here's the link:
