This function is pretty much what the <bean:message> tag is for.  You keep
your various translations in properties files, and the tag picks the
correct one based on the Locale associated with this user.

For an example of this in action, deploy the struts-example webapp (from
1.1b3) and change your browser preferences to Japanese.  The Japanese
resourcess will be used automatically.
