lang/arabic-utf-8.inc.php://$byteUnits = array('بايت', 'كيلوبايت', 'ميجابايت', 'غيغابايت');
lang/belarusian_cyrillic-utf-8.inc.php:$byteUnits = array('Б', 'КБ', 'МБ', 'ГБ', 'ТБ', 'ПБ', 'ЭБ');
lang/bulgarian-utf-8.inc.php:$byteUnits = array('байта', 'КБ', 'МБ', 'ГБ', 'ТБ', 'ПБ', 'ЕБ');
lang/finnish-utf-8.inc.php:$byteUnits = array('tavua', 'kt', 'Mt', 'Gt', 'Tt', 'Pt', 'Et');
lang/french-utf-8.inc.php:$byteUnits = array('Octets', 'Ko', 'Mo', 'Go', 'To', 'Po', 'Eo');
