as for alternative localizations, that is something not unique to
Spanish at all. To some extend you can and should actually respect
country specific locales as in the example of en_US versus en_UK.
However besides that I would encourage you to actually take a look at
typical Xfce applications and see what words they use. Gnome has word
lists to address the issue -  but Xfce applications do have
small differences in vocabulary, easily observed by using them.
