The FTP-Master can get the files from:
http://ddtp.debian.net/debian/Translations.tar.gz	 (all)
http://ddtp.debian.net/debian/dists/sid/main/i18n/       (per File)
http://ddtp.debian.net/debian/dists/etch/main/i18n/      (per File)
http://ddtp.debian.net/debian/dists/lenny/main/i18n/     (per File)
