I edited the part concerning installing ini files as it was confusing when the inis were placed in a language/xx-XX/ folder in the pack. It looked as if these files could be installed in the site language folder. Plugins in that regard are very different from components and modules.
this page needs to be updated to Joomla! 1.6, 1.7 & 2.5
I added the section about using another component / plugins language. I needed to do this recently for an extension with a plugin and component and this was the only page I could find about loading languages. Purplebeanie 01:52, 14 May 2012 (CDT)
