We don't talk about the same issue.

For the issue that I talk about, French Amaya _is_ affected - just as 
all other non-english localizations of Amaya on Mac OS X.

Wrong. Amaya uses it, you just don't realize it.

If you fail to place a fr.proj folder inside Resources, then actuallly:

    * you are instructing the system to consider Amaya as an English
      application – regardless of whether you select «en (French)» in
      the Amaya preferences or not. And regardless of whether your
      system is French or English or Norwegian or what.
    * this means that those menus which are offered by the OS X system -
      such as the Amaya menu (with the «Quit Amaya» and «Preferences»
      submenus) - will be presented in English.
    * the same goes for the Help menu. And the Windows menu.


_With_ a 'fr.lproj' folder, you will/can get a Fenętre menu instead, as 
well as _two_ Aide menus (just Like I get two Norwegian Hjelp menus). 
The two Aide menus goes away if you remove the translation for the Help 
menu.

But perhaps you have another way to solve this problem?
