Just a report, it has been working here (orage_translit_timezone.jpg),
although it's localized even in internally used string. I think
such a bi-directional strings (one for UI, the another for internal
use, simultaneously) would be one of the last TODOs in I18N (in case
Q_() doesn't work at all).

Anyway, if those timezone strings were marked N_() in advance by
using a previous attached dummy file, is it possible that variable
`l_tz' is distinguished to use i.e. function_name(_(l_tz)),
return(_(l_tz)) for the button label, function_name(l_tz), return(l_tz)
for the strings used in the ~/.config/xfce4/mcs_settings/orage.xml?
