i dont want to call translation plugin as and when there is an update
in lang_prefs plugin..i want to read the lan_prefs plugin when im
translating a message......

for ex.
x's lang is eng and y's lang is french

x has translation plugin in his pidgin. x  specifies in his lan_pref
plugin that y' s lang is french

now assume x wants to send a message to y

x's translation plugin doesnot know to which lang should the x's
message be  translated into

it now reads the lan_pref plugin to find out that y's lang is french

hence translates x's message into french and sends it

tell me if  there is a way to do it please...
