That was something that was missing in vdr. Thanks.

Although this is really easy to install for a user, it will be hard for an 
admin/distributor to keep these files in sync. As of vdr currently supporting 
up to 20 languages, one would have to edit up to 20 files just for a minor 
change (even if it just affects the command line itself).
Wouldn't it be cleaner just to have _one_ config file and one for the 
translations?
