Hi AskMeFi. Can someone tell me how to combine 350 text files into one large text file so that the original filenames and dates are included above (or below) each entry?

I need to make a web page that has 12 different languages, on one page (inc. some right-to-left languages). It's links to customer guides (PDFs) in the different languages - and rather than list them in English (Arabic, bengali, Hindi, Punjabi..) I'd like each language name to be written itn its own script. Can anyone point me to a list of langauge names as text not images, and give me a heads-up on the HTML code required?
