I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction for translating the messages sent to users on registration.

Can these message be sent in a different language?

Thank you very much in advance!

thanks gabriel,

i'm also experimenting the same issue.

do you know which variables correspond to the different mails of this page (subject, body) ? (page: admin/user/settings)
so that i could populate the right settings.php file as described in your link http://drupal.org/node/313272

In my case I needed "Welcome, no approval required" subject and body variables
and I used successfully :
$conf['i18n_variables'] = array(

You can retrieve any other variable by setting it to a specific value (like : "peek-a-boo!")
and use phpAdmin to search it in 'drupal_variable' table.

After reloading the "User e-mail settings" page (and maybe flushing caches... I'm not sure)
the fields added to $conf['i18n_variables'] should appear with the "This is a multilingual variable".
Then you can translate it editing the "User e-mail settings" page in each languages.

Good luck (if not done yet).

you can use mail edit module.
Registration Language is another good module to use along side by mail edit.

Use i18n module and then the User mail translation module which is included in i18n
