I want to translate "Free Download Manager" to my native language Sinhala (si) using over 80% people in Sri Lanka. Please tell how to start it?

1. Open %programfiles%\Free Download Manager\Language\eng.lng file in Notepad.
2. Save it under other name (which is suitable for your Language).
3. Translate its lines.
4. Send translated file to us.

Sinhala and Georgian Unicode scripts have no Windows codepages, so what encoding should be used? UTF-8, UTF-16?

My question was addressed to FDM developers (Alex and others). It is developers' choice which encoding to use as default in their application.

Your statement is nonsense. And if you mean "Georgian Unicode script uses both UTF-8 and UTF-16 encodings", your statement is obvious, as any Unicode character may be encoded in any UTF encoding, see Wikipedia article.

sure it's developers choice, but developers develop the program for users and Georgian Users also are Users for this program :)

Just use notepad for editing language file and save it using ANSI encoding.
Before doing a lot of work make sure file is not damaged after saving it.

Alex, have you read my post carefully? Sinhala and Georgian languages do NOT have ANSI codepages, they have only Unicode scripts.
I think you should convert all language files to UTF-8 as it is already done for tips.dat/tips.txt.

I am too Georgian, and thought for the translation, but as i red here, i'll add few words as well:

Yes, it's to be able to display Georgian and such language characters correctly, the FDM should be able to display Unicode characters, as it does simply Notepad.

In Windows XP Georgian Installed when checking support for writing right-to-left languages in Languages tab on Regional settings at the Control Panel.
