I do not exactly know, but I believe somehow magically "localtime" is
supposed to take care of that, I just don't know how to tell
"localtime" (or all of Perl) which locale to use.

As a very very first cut, check out the code I already put into
"humanTime" to either use your code (in case that the language starts
with "en") or "localtime" else.
