I just took a look at the source of the package.  Currently there is no
way to use the R internationalization facilities to change the default
display of "All", but that's easy to add.  The only other fixed word
displayed by the package is "Percent".

I'll commit changes to allow these to be set automatically.  If you are
really interested in this, you can read the online description at


for how to put together a translation file for your language; I'd be
happy to include it in future versions of tables.  (The translation
shouldn't be hard for only two words, the hard part is likely getting
the tools to install a translation.  Error message translations could
also be included.)
