Hello,
I would guess, they are standard. Of course, usage is optional.

A lot of the fields seem to be related to movie business, like "dancer", "woodcutter", "wood-engraver" and so on. They don't make sense in an ebook.
They make sense in some very rare situations. I.E. Woodcutter is defined as a person who cuts an image into wood (see definition in Sigil). This reminds me on the the way, how pictures are produce until ~1850/60. I.E. the early works of W. Busch are painted on a shelf, engraved by a woodcutter and then printed. Well, who remembers the name of the woodcutter today ?

Are all these fields really needed? They will cause a lot of work (and may be frustration) for all translaters.

I couldn't find any list of all this fields of "Dublin Core Metadata" in a German translation. And I assume, other translators to other languages will have a similar problem.
As user_none says, there are some translations (i guess, just the 15 basic attributes).
