I'd say GNU gettext is your friend for this:

Have a look at the perl bindings for it on CPAN:

All it really involves is wrapping all of your text calls
with a gettext(),

so instead of

print "Please enter your username and password\n";

you would have

print gettext("Please enter your username and password")."\n";

More details in that URL.
