In the live plugin - http://live.vdr-developer.org/ - we use a two fold approach. Dates are formatted with strftime(3) which obeys for some of the format specifiers the current locale of the VDR. Additionally we 'translate' the format strings with the standard i18n support of VDR (e.g tr() macro). This allows the localization people to tailor to their special needs.
