Sure, it's very easy to do--just create localization files that
change the PmWiki defaults into whatever language is required.  I think
there are very few truly hard-coded items in PmWiki (and I can certainly
work to eliminate them wherever they exist).

If anyone wants to provide me with the correct phrases PmWiki should
use for a given language, I'll be very happy to create the corresponding 
localization file and make it part of the distribution.  :-)
