Hi Tom,

You might take a look at the existing multi-language plugins for WP 
(rather than WP-MU) and see how they do it. The ones I know of are my 
own Language Switcher (find it at poplarware.com) and Gengo; there are 
also others. LS, at least, has quite a few comments in the code and 
I'd be happy to answer questions.

Good luck,
