IMHO we should translate them once (in $lang.xml) and simply use
references in module files: 


the abbreviations should left in "english" (svdh) as a canonical form.
This should be non-ambiguous. theoretically. ;-)

The migration is the other point... in the english versions a simple s&r
script will be adequate.


The japanese versions... hmm. I don't trust perl to treat the charset
correctly, since I've never worked with such weird characters ;-)

Yoshiki? Hiroaki?
