Make a checkbox in the overview for translations to find quickly the [Auto] fields that need translations.
I don't know if you know this or not, but you can find Auto translations in Systems studio by following my remarks in this post: https://support.adamsoftware.net/entries/42184177-Change-the-title-of-a-DefaultSpace. Start from step 8 forward. This worked in 5.0. Haven't tested it in 5.1.
But you're right: a checkbox would be nicer.
