It's a bummer it has to be done this way, but better than nothing. If anything, at least it confirms the source code is valid. It would still be ideal if an original, working foreign language rom can be found and compared for the sake of verifying data etc.

As for needed foreign language roms that I am aware of:

Atari Destroyer and Midway's Checkmate.

-
src/mame/drivers/destroyr.cpp

- missing language roms means DIP switches related to these do not function

ROM_LOAD( "030138.rom",0x7000, 0x0800, NO_DUMP ) // optional add-on translation rom


src/mame/drivers/mw8080bw.cpp

ROM_START( checkmat )

ROM_LOAD( "checkmat.d", 0x1000, 0x0400, NO_DUMP ) /* language ROM */
-


There might be others, but these are the ones I know about.
