As an example, for country names in French, look at the "territory
type" section of this CLDR locale.  It helps a lot if you are familiar
with ISO-3166 country codes.

Just wanted to share a few of my favorite tricks for
finding localized
language or country names.

1) Look it up in the ISO639 / ISO-639-3 PO (languages)
or ISO-3166 for
countries in the relevant language.

2) Look up the Language article in English Wikipedia,
check out the
left hand bar for an interwiki link to the same article
in another
language's Wikipedia.  Not surprisingly, there are a
high percentage
of languages with wiki articles on their own language
(in their own
language), so this is not quite as random as it may

3) Look for it in the CLDR locales.  Not as convenient
as you need to
download th erepo, no convenient web-broswer.
