My misunderstanding, Sorry. I would have expected meta-data like language 
names or fonts to be built into the application (locale support library to be 
specific) rather than pulled from a po file. In any case, the preferred display 
name would be "Hindi (हिन्दी)". This allows readers to know which language is 
involved when a proper font or rendering engine is missing on the host.

I would say leave it out for now. There are multiple rendering engines on 
Linux and it is best to pull supported fonts at run-time.
