'John didn't know what to do.'

it occurs to me I may not fully understand your goal. please clarify:

Referring to example 1 above, there are five words, each of which is
an 'element.' In line 2 there are also five elements, one for each word
in line 1. Each element must be positioned for the longer of the
matching element in each line. 

In example 1 above '' is longer than 'Todos,' so it controls
the position of the second element. Similarly, all the remaining
elements in line 2 are also longer than their counterparts in line 1, so
the elements in line 1 must be spaced out so they start at the same
position as their counterparts below.

Usually the elements in the second line are longer than their
counterparts in the first line, but that doesn't always happen. If an
element in the first line happens to be longer than its counterpart in
line 2, then the element in line 2 must be spaced out so it starts at
the same position as its counterpart above.

Each pair of elements must be aligned vertically.

The third line is just the translation and needs no special spacing.

Here is a PDF with some examples on pages 4 and 5:
