Actually, original strings come from xfcalendar/trunk/libical/
zoneinfo/zones.tab (plain ASCII text not C, and it's a part of
libical), a function reads timezone in Orage is just managing
functions in libical regarding the timezone.

I suppose libical itself should be modified, but if a
transliteration works, I don't care the way to achieve and
you're a real programmer, therefore you can take over my
suggestion by your way.
