are you sure that the $LANG property is set on your system?
if not do an "export LANG=es_ES"

do an echo $LANG before running "forrest site" to verify that the change 
has been made.

The i18naction does not know anything about project.language that is why 
  it does not translate

Well you change the new stuff about a skin i18n aware. There is more 
stuff that needs to change. Still, I think that the main issue that you 
have is that forrest does not get you env.LANG property.

I have change that so it uses {user.language} instead. try to "svn up" 
and report if that is working for you.
