Actually, I just realised after looking at Dirk's implementation of  
the language switcher, that I can set the key of the multilanguage  
file array to whatever I like - so I can use any key (eg en_GB,  
ja_JP) that I like. Which means I can set these to my preferred  
locale strings and work from them.

That'll do me for now, as no time to look into anything else for the  
moment. Will look at PEAR though later - thanks Joe.
