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.
