According to ABOUT-NLS from gnome-core:

   Internationalized packages have usually many `po/LL.po' files, where
   LL gives an ISO 639 two-letter code identifying the language. 

and that's what the one in the gimp source has to say:

   Language codes are *not* the same as the country codes given
   in ISO 3166.

And ISO 639 seems to specify:

   uk Ukrainian

BTW, I have no clue why there are different ABOUT-NLS in gnome-core and
gimp or which one is newer or more accurate.

If you are looking for a good laugh, point your browser to the en_SV
translation for gnome-lookit. This is definitely a language that is not
defined in any ISO standard:
