which runs against data with LDIF like:

gospdescription;lang-es: Y vista la estrella, se regocijaron con muy grande gozo.
gospdescription;lang-sq: Ata, kur e panë yllin, u gëzuan me gëzim shumë të madh.
gospdescription;lang-sv: Och när de sågo stjärnan, uppfylldes de av mycket stor glädje.
gospdescription;lang-sw: Walipoiona hiyo nyota, walifurahi mno.
