Substructures and detecting if in structure and its values

I'm trying to create structure of various words and phrases in different languages. JavaScript isn't my strong suite, but something like:

var languages = {
"en":{
"load":"Loading",
"next":"Next",
"prev":"Previous"},
es:{
"load":"Carga",
"next":"Próximo",
"prev":"Anterior"},
pt:{
"load":"Carregamento",
"next":"Próximo",
"prev":"Anterior"}};

From this, or whatever may be a more appropriate structure, what I need to do is to be able to detect if a language is in the structure and what a given word or phrase is.

language.indexOf("en");
language.indexOf("de");

selectedLang = "es";
language.selectedLang.load;
language.selectedLang.next;

I'm not sure how best to persue this and would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

example

if ( languages[selectedLang] !== undefined ) { // have language
loadString = languages[selectedLang].load;
}

You might consider using the YUI Internationalization utility for this.

Thanks Dave, that was exactly what I needed.

Fotiman, I'll look into that.
