Default Descriptive ratings instead of numbers

With an international site, it becomes evident that different nations handle the value they give to number differently. Especially when comparing the ratings from Americans to Europeans.

Therefore I'd like to replace the number for a descriptive rating. i.e.:

1. Worst ever
2. Terrible
3. Very poor
4. Poor
5. lacking
6. positive
7. Good
8. Very good
9. Excellent
10. Best ever

So, instead of a 4, I'd like to have the word 'poor' in my drop downs. This way I know that those who mean poor, will not rate 6.

Is this possible?

Just reverse your logic.

The problem is that people give different values to the same numbers. Simply because they are numbers. This can be solved by replacing the numbers for concepts / definitions.
