This was just some of the entries in the Niger-Kordofanian (Bantu) Language family. I have no idea if any of these languages - besides Swahili and (I guess) Rwanda and Zulu - actually exists today. Btw, you can find online translators for Swahili and probably some of the others as well. They are no way near perfect but they actually do return the right answer from time to time :-)
These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
