I added 

 * get link setting link language instead of letting the script detect it
 * depends on getLink( version, mirror, schema ) and setLanguage( lang )
function getLinkWithLang( version, language, mirror, schema ) {
    setLanguage( language );
    return getLink( version, mirror, schema );

Note that I cannot get rid of setLanguage( language ) and the variable
NL_LANGUAGE because both getLanguage() and getLanguageISO() try to get
the language from the navigator.

I modified content/download/exceptions.css so that now there is only
need to 

* adapt the links in index.html
* set the language when getting the link:
  LINK = getLinkWithLang( VERSION, "es", MIRROR, SCHEMA );
* transalting the text
