On Wed, 20 Feb 2008 Till Tantau submitted the new 


package to CTAN.

Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/translator
License: lppl

Announcement for the package:
 > The translator package is intended to provide an open platform for  
 > packages that need to be localized. Unlike the babel package (which  
 > can and typically will be used together with translator), the set of  
 > words that can be translated is not fixed and new words and  
 > translations can be added in a simple manner. New translations can be  
 > added in a decentralized manner.
 > The package is written in completely LaTeX and it is quite  
 > lightweight. It could very easily be ported to plain-TeX or ConTeXt,  
 > provided there is a "public demand" for this.
 > A typical application of this package is the beamer class, which  
 > already uses it, if it present. Then words like "Theorem" will be  
 > translated to "Satz" if the document language is German, for instance.
