Localised Application Names

Sven-S. Porst:

Mac OS X comes with the ability to localise displayed application names. While that seems like a great feature at first, it is an essentially flawed idea. Flawed because it makes things inconsistent. And thus makes it harder to communicate with people or the machine about those items.

Sounds like a real mess. (Thanks to Joe Clark.)
