You dont need to create multiple master page, rather you have to SharePoint Multilingual Site feature. following thing you get with it:

  • Create, manage, and read content in different languages.
  • Navigate a site in a preferred language.
  • Collaborate with people in different regions, in different languages, in the same application.
  • Manage personal sites by using a preferred language.
  • Search and browse content across a company by using a preferred language.

one of the main requirement is, you have to install the desired language pack on all SharePoint servers.
