--- Comment #5 from Andre Miranda <andreldm at xfce.org> ---
The purpose of the daemon is to speed up Thunar initialization every time you
open a window.
As ToZ mentioned thunar -q asks the daemon to quit, and will not print any
message, it's similar to pkill -i thunar.

When the daemon starts, it passes LANG to gettext, which is responsible L10N.
Further calls to Thunar just poke the running daemon to show a new window,
gettext has already been initialized.
Unfortunately what you ask is currently not possible or at least requires too
much effort for little benefit IMHO.

Why don't you just set the desired locale system-wide? The only time I set LANG
when launching an app is when I need to check translations, in that case thunar
-q && LANG=... thunar works well. Do you have another use case that is hindered
by the current behavior?
