i use to check the "system weekdaynames" for sunday, sounds strange, 
but works :-D
(sprache = language)
...
  switch
   case "Sonntag" is among the lines of the system weekdaynames
     put "d" into sprache
     break
   case "Zondaag" is among the lines of the system weekdaynames
     put "hl" into sprache
     break
   case "Sondaag" is among the lines of the system weekdaynames
     put "af" into sprache
     break
   case "Dimanche" is among the lines of the system weekdaynames
     put "fr" into sprache
     break
   case "Domenica" is among the lines of the system weekdaynames
     put "it" into sprache
     break
   case "Domingo" is among the lines of the system weekdaynames
     put "sp" into sprache
     break
   default
     put "gb" into sprache
     break
...

Hope that helps
