$Language

FilledSmallSquare$Language is a list of strings which give the names of languages to use for messages.

FilledSmallSquare All language names are conventionally given in English, and are capitalized, as in "French".

FilledSmallSquare When a message with a name s::tag is requested either internally or through the Message function, Mathematica searches for messages with names s::tag:: corresponding to the entries "" in the list $Language. Only if it fails to find any of these messages will it use the message with the actual name s::tag.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 2.8.22 and Section 2.13.1.
