    Language Pack Usage:
    With version 2.0.5 there is an additional download link called, 'Language Pack' available to you. First, download this ZIP file to your local computer and unZIP to a folder of your choice. Find the .js language file that best meets your needs and FTP this file to the following folder on your server;
    /modules/mod_gcalendarfeed/js/cultures
    Once uploaded, copy this filename (DO NOT COPY THE .js EXTENSION NAME) and replace the default English filename in the Language Pack module option. Whenever you make changes to the default module settings make 100% sure to SAVE these settings. The Language Pack assists Google Calendar Feed Scroller by adjusting the 'Date & Time' stamp language to the Language Pack you are using. This feature is considered beta but our tests show that it works!
