I suggest, you should pick one 'default', whatever it is, and then, if
you have enough time, make additional local versions.

I'd like to see you unify most of the Xfce components as
appropriate, for instance I took a look over the wiki page and it says
'File ___ Archivo' whereas Thunar currently uses the term 'Fichero'. This
is just one example I easily spotted because it's a toplevel item,
there might be others.

Personally I would also suggest using the Spanish term 'red' as in
'Navegador red', but that's up to you and other translators, feel free
to disregard my opinion. ^_^

Just my 2 pfenning,
