I don't think anyone suggests doing that, I think what can be
translated is *the interface*, so for example in the menu
"Quit" or "Exit" or whatever it says (I'm not a menu user)
_that_ would be translated. I don't think there are a lot of
advantages doing this, and I do see some DISadvantages, so
I think it shouldn't be done, actually, but the suggestion
isn't "translate everything", that would be an insane, almost,
rather than a bad suggestion.
