I had to make such a decision once too for one of my websites. And had
chosen to just write "Choose Language" in front of the down-down menu
with the following reasons:
a) English is the most used language (if you take second languages into
account). And even if a user understands only a few English words he
will probably understand "Choose Language".
b) If the user does not understand English there is still a high chance
that his native language is as well a Latin-based language. And he will
therefore be able to figure out what "Language" means.
c) And if everything fails I expect that the user *learned* by now that
the language selector is almost always in the upper right corner of a
website. Or that he is curious enough to click around on the website and
he is trying to figure out what this drop-down list in the upper right
corner is doing.
