Both approaches result uncomfortable. Between the two I would choose the simple "No" one. (btw, I'm a native Spanish speaker). Why? Because if I just want to select "No" and for some reason didn't read the other button, when I see the button with the "No/No" I would tend to check if I'm missing something with the 2nd "No".

Use the same interface that websites do, providing small links to switch to other languages. This will be much more visually pleasing than a single email with multiple translations in it. It will also give a ...
