[Cin] Request: Language settings

Checked the tarball. Language settings are placed in the menu exactly at 
the spot you would look for them. They work perfect on my system.

For the finished version I would suggest calling it simply "language" 
instead of "locale", so that everybody who randomly flips through the 
menus will instantly know, what you mean by this.

Thank you very much. Gerd
