Yep. Notice, however, that even with Brian's solution, you do need to
set the locale first:

> format(ISOdate(2004,1:12,1),"%B")
 [1] "January" "February" "March" "April" "May" "June"
 [7] "July" "August" "September" "October" "November" "December"
> Sys.setlocale("LC_TIME","da_DK") ;format(ISOdate(2004,1:12,1),"%B")
[1] "da_DK"
 [1] "januar" "februar" "marts" "april" "maj" "juni"
 [7] "juli" "august" "september" "oktober" "november" "december"
