The language of the Gtk+ strings should match the language of your 
operating system. If you want to allow the user to specify a different 
language in the application itself, the only way that I'm aware of is to 
set the "LANG" environment variable(not sure whether that works on 
non-unix operating systems, too) via g_setenv. See bug 
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=477396 for details.
