Hm - it unfortunately doesn't. I am running a german Vista, but the program
shows english texts... 
The program is written on an english (or russian) system, I re-compiled it
on a german system. I have installed Mono 2.4 for windows - and I don't have
any Idea, why the gtk standard dialogs still use english language... 
Can I change the GTK+-strings manually? I only had to change some view

Well, in fact, I don't want to use a different language - I just want to use
the same language as the operation system. This solution seems to be complex
for me...
