The image of a green leaf to refer to a new start is a pun based on usage of the word “leaf” to refer to a page in a book. (see What does it mean to “Turn over a New Leaf”? I don’t know of any other languages that use the same word to mean both “leaf” and “page”. A literal translation would make no sense at all, and an explanation would take all the fun out of it. For a finder to seek their own translation only invests more in the New Leaf experience.
