I am not sure why one needs to list all these. I used to have them all listed but decided it would be a lot easier to update the values from the Blizzard runtime. Blizzard has API localizedFactionName = GetFactionInfoByID(reputationIndex). You can make a list of the factions in each of the expansions like
Code:
			{
			[1] = { 69, 54, 47, 72, 930, 1134, 530, 76, 81, 68, 911, 1133, 509, 890, 730, 510, 729, 889, 21, 577, 369, 470, 910, 609, 749, 990, 270, 529, 87, 909, 92, 989, 93, 349, 809, 70, 59, 576, 922, 967, 589, 469, 67, },
			[2] = { 942, 946, 978, 941, 1038, 1015, 970, 933, 947, 1011, 1031, 1077, 932, 934, 935, 1156, 1012, },
			[3] = { 1037, 1106, 1068, 1104, 1126, 1067, 1052, 1073, 1098, 1105, 1119, 1064, 1050, 1085, 1091, 1090, 1094, 1124, },
			[4] = { 1158, 1173, 1135, 1171, 1174, 1178, 1172, 1177, 1204, },
			[5] = { 1216, 1351, 1270, 1277, 1275, 1283, 1282, 1228, 1281, 1269, 1279, 1243, 1273, 1358, 1276, 1271, 1242, 1278, 1302, 1341, 1337, 1345, 1272, 1280, 1352, 1357, 1353, 1359, 1375, 1376, 1387, 1388, },
			},
Then iterate through it for each reputationIndex.

Faction language translations

Faction language translation is what i am going for not just pulling them out but a actual listing of translations without having to go and pull them individuality and get help when new ones appear

That's against the WoW ToS, so...

I'm not sure what you mean by "actual listing ... without having to go and pull them individually ... when new ones appear". There is no API function for "get a list of all possible factions", nor one for "get a list of all translations for this faction name".

Regardless of whether you use locale-dependent names or locale-indepedent IDs, you're still going to have to manually add the string or ID to your addon; the only difference is that if you use IDs, you only have to add the ID once, whereas if you use names, you have to find and enter the translation for every language.

In-game, the only way to get a list of factions is to loop over the factions known to the player:

Code:
for i = 1, GetNumFactions() do
     local name, description, standingID, barMin, barMax, barValue, atWarWith, canToggleAtWar,
          isHeader, isCollapsed, hasRep, isWatched, isChild, factionID = GetFactionInfo(i)
     -- do something here
end
Basically, I think the problem is that you didn't actually say what you want this data for, or what you are trying to do with it, and there's not really any way for us to give you an answer without knowing what the question is.

Edit: If you mean "faction language translation" as in translating in-game languages used by the opposite faction (eg. translating Common to Orcish so you can understand what the Alliance are yelling) that is against the WoW ToS, and against this site's ToS; you will not get any help with that here, and you risk getting your account banned by Blizzard if they catch you doing it .

If you mean "faction language translation" as in translating the names of factions into different languages (eg. translating "Night Elf" into French and German) then that is fine, but you'll need to be more specific about what you are actually trying to do if you want any help.

Code of Conduct

These rules (the “World of Warcraft Code of Conduct”), maintained and enforced exclusively by Blizzard, must be adhered to by all players. It is your responsibility to know, understand and abide by this World of Warcraft Code of Conduct. The following rules are not meant to be exhaustive, and Blizzard reserves the right to determine which conduct it considers to be outside the spirit of the Game and to take such disciplinary measures as it sees fit up to and including termination and deletion of the Account. Blizzard reserves the right to modify this Code of Conduct at any time.

B. Rules Related to "Chat" and Interaction With Other Users. Communicating in-game with other Users and Blizzard representatives, whether by text, voice or any other method, is an integral part of the Game and the Service and is referred to here as "Chat." When engaging in Chat, you may not:

(viii) Communicate directly with players who are playing characters aligned with the opposite faction (e.g. Horde communicating with Alliance or vice versa)

I honestly cannot tell if the OP is trying to communicate cross-faction or just translate reputation factions. Care to clarify, A_Nolan?

Seerah pointed out to me that I neglected to look at the screenshots in the OP - it would appear that there was a miscommunication and I took the latter posts literally as they were typed.

I guess we're just confused about what you actually want to do with this information. If you just want somewhere you can look up the Russian translation for "Darnassus", that already exists, and it's called Wowhead.com. Find the page for "Darnassus", then click on the language dropdown at the top of the page (it probably says "English" right now), and click on "Русский" to switch to the Russian version of the page.

There's just no use for this information in an addon, though, since there are locale-independent numeric identifiers for all zones and factions, and there's absolutely no reason to use a bloated database of string translations when you can use a single number instead.

You can get most, if not all of those, directly from game APIs, which is probably where WoWPedia got their information. For example, http://www.wowpedia.org/API_GetArchaeologyInfo

All of the translations on the Wowpedia page you linked (localized names of trade skills) can be obtained in-game using the GetSpellInfo API.

Code:
local NameOfEnchantingSkillInCurrentLocale = GetSpellInfo(7411)
Granted, there's no API for getting the Russian name of a spell in a French client, but there's no use for that information either. If you're playing in French, the Russian name isn't relevant.
