Is there a localized thunar? Especially I am looking for thunar in German.

Other XFCE programs are localized, e.g. when I run:
LANGUAGE=de_DE:de xfce4-terminal
then I see German menus:

In opposite to:
LANGUAGE=de_DE:de thunar
there are the standard english menus:

I have also testet it with the environment variables LANG and LC_ALL
without success. 

I am using xubuntu 18.04 and have installed:

root at moep:~# dpkg -l | grep thunar
ii  libthunarx-2-0            1.6.15-0ubuntu1.18.04.1  extension library for thunar
ii  thunar                    1.6.15-0ubuntu1.18.04.1  File Manager for Xfce
ii  thunar-archive-plugin     0.3.1-4                  Archive plugin for Thunar file manager
ii  thunar-data               1.6.15-0ubuntu1.18.04.1  Provides thunar documentation, icons and translations
ii  thunar-media-tags-plugin  0.2.1-1                  Media tags plugin for Thunar file manager
ii  thunar-volman             0.8.1-2                  Thunar extension for volumes management

I see:

root at moep:~# dpkg -L thunar-data | grep /de/

root at moep:~# ll /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/Thunar.mo
