To switch language, you need to set the LANGUAGE environment variable to
the wished one :
e.g. :

	jf at palpatine:~$ LANGUAGE=fr_BE xfce4-menueditor

will launch the menueditor in French and

	jf at palpatine:~$ LANGUAGE=C xfce4-menueditor

in English. If the language is not found, it's launched in English
