Forwarding this message from Tom, which was addressed to me only but I
believe the intention was to send it to the list.

I believe it is a bit out of topic, though, but you can obtain the
translations yourself with the isoquery program and the language code
for each language. I.e. 

Executing 'isoquery -l fr -n fr -i 639' on the command line without the
quotes will return you the the name of the French language in French;
'isoquery -l de -n de -i 639' will do the same for German, and so on.
Note that this does not seem to work for RTL (Right To Left) languages,
which appear reversed on the terminal.

Thanks to everyone who sent me such swift responses.  Just knowing the
language is Dutch is helpful :)

A non-Ubuntu, non-OpenSource problem i am working on for this website
http://www.cecf.co.uk/
http://www.cecf.co.uk/crisp.html
wants this list with each item in the list translated into its language

Arabic
Bengali
Cantonese
Farsi
French
Gujarati
Hindi
Mandarin
Pashto
Polish
Portugese
Swahili
Tigrigna
Turkish
Urdu

For example, only "French" would be written in French.  I think i have
found a different work-around so the leaflets might appear during the
day today as thumbnails but i prefer the idea of just having a list as
the Newsletters page on that website does.  If you do have time and
don't object to letting me know an answer to one or 2 of the list then
please email me rather than the entire mailing list!
Many apologies for being so cheeky!
Many regards to all from
Tom :)
