Err, the point is these entries should *not* be translated.

E.g., "Language-Name" should be "Hindi" in Hindi script, CJL suggested हिन्दी or हिंदी. This is how the language name will appear in the language menu - the comments are not stellar but they do say that specifically.

The other entries should be left empty, unless you need to set them specifically to make it work. E.g. Linux-Font should be left empty, or the name of a specific font name to use. Better leave empty.
