I added the file ui/pgadmin3.lng, which contains the full names as 
wxWindows knows them, together with the native translation. I copied all 
translation if available from the corresponding *.po file. On my Linux 
system, all language names display well, except for Farsi; the arabic 
font seems to be defective, being defined to consume much more space 
then it actually does. Hopefully, the Farsi and Arabic users have a 
better font. On win32, the font is ok.

Each translator should state which exact language version he supports, 
including specification of the land (or lands), and provide the 
translation. To make translation of the language name easier, I provided 
a languages.po file, including all language names. Translators may use 
the languages.po file (attached), and send it back with just the native 
name translated. We'll add this to the pgadmin3.lng file.

For some unknown reason, the file didn't go to cvsroot/pgadmin3, but to 
cvsroot itself. I can't see why this happened, AFAICS wincvs did 
everything right. Dave, can you have a look at languages.hwx (source) 
and languages.po and move it to the right place?

Regards,
Andreas
