How is your title constructed (what kind of variables)?
How is it represented in the SideBar, as link, in a pagelist, or

you could use two PTVs perhaps, like this in your page (example):

(:ta: language-part:)
(:tb: full title text part:)
(:title {$:ta} - {$:tb} :)

and in the SideBar as a link with text:

* [[Group/Pagename| {*$:tb} ]]

Best regards,
