Boris, the Hungarian install profile, which we ship the Hungarian 
translation in automatically imports the Hungarian translation while you 
install Drupal. It is not yet there, but we will provide real Hungarian 
date formats (via form_alter), and some support for special setups of 
some free hosts in Hungary. I know that these more complex stuff is not 
there yet, but 'simple language translation' is not really that simple
