Ahh, misread the post. Interesting, this actually sounds like it might be a bug in OSX. I would think that the Apple menu should go localized even without the folder.

Perhaps apple is thinking developers would prefer consistency in their own app - that is if some of the menus are in english, they all should be.

yeah, i thought of the "consistency inside an application". but since the apple menu is not part of the app, but rather part of the system (as is the dock, e.g.), the menu shouldn't switch languages. but there's a problem... :)))

just found out that the technique localizes parts of the "window"-menu, too: bring all to front and hide/show toolbar. aaaaaaaaargh, there goes the consistency - you win some, you lose some, i guess.
