From a hint given on the beta firmware list, it appears that there is a better way to do this.

It appears that nickel uses the "ExtraLocales" option in the config file to load extra languages. Adding "ExtraLocales=ca" into the "ApplicationPreferences" section of the config file adds an extra option to the list of available languages. At the end will be "Extra: ca". Selecting loads the translation file and set the interface language. It also seems to set the locale correctly.

And it looks like the extra locales is a comma separated list. With "ca,ru", I get both added to the list of languages. Selecting ru doesn't work, but that might be the translation file. I haven't tried it by itself yet.

I haven't played with this much but have found a problem. If I try to open the list menu in the library, it the device reboots. This might be a version problem. I have beta firmware installed and the translation files I tried are from this thread with only a change to set the language properly. Or it could be the Qt version I am using.
