Why not use gettext()?
something like this:

setlocale(LC_ALL, "en_GB");
bindtextdomain("mytranslations", "/path/to/gmofiles");
$translations = array(
  "animal" => _("Cobra"),
$translated_text = saprintf($text, $translations);

Then you don't need lots of different language arrays to parse.

I'm not sure that PHP should implement multi-language functions itself,
perhaps something like that could go in PEAR?


PS: Anyone out there got gettext working with PHP under win32?
It's on my TODO, albeit near the bottom (and it's a big list!).
