Its a pity that this really generic and clever function fails with non english menus.

Non english Menus
Authored by: osxpounder on Sep 28, '06 01:03:22PM

I haven't seen a non-English OSX menu, but I'm thinking that, if it's like menus I saw in German PCs years ago, the position of the menu item doesn't change ... only its name changes.

Which might not be any help to know, but, *if* you can write a script that finds menu items to click by some index of their position on the menu, you might be able to craft a script that doesn't care what language the menu itself uses.

What do you think? Is it possible? Crazy?

Are you sureĀ ? I just used it with Pages and french menus, and it worked perfectly.
I pasted the code in Script Editor then added these two linesĀ :

tell application "Pages" to activate
menu_click({"Pages", "Insertion", "Note de bas de page"})

And it worked (it inserts a footnote).
