Translatable Foldit Again

New version of Foldit was released. It addresses all the issues related to the translation module that caused crashes on Windows in Europe. Hopefully this will be much more robust. It also makes it much easier to translate Foldit.

Translation works like this now:

1) Download template

Translate the strings

Save the file as foldit.[language_code].po in resources/locale with UTF-8 encoding

add following to options.txt
"language" : "[language_code]"

run foldit

French and Russian are already included. So to run Foldit in Russian just add to options.txt
"language" : "ru"
and for French add "language" : "fr" to the options.txt file (info on where to find that file is here:
