I do remember now :) setlocale don't handle properly two letters
language code like 'es' it expect a full locale name like 'es_ES' .
And using the CFLocale API to obtain the full local from 'es' does
not seem possible.
And even with CFLocaleCopyAvailableLocaleIdentifiers() the returned
array will contain 'es' among 'es_ES' and 'en_GB' so, when
intersecting with the preferred languages  threw
CFBundleCopyLocalizationsForPreferences() 'es' will be returned.
setlocale(LC_MESSAGES, NULL) will return "C", and thus fallback the
standard english language (LC_CTYPE is not set on Mac OS X), whereas
setlocale should have returned es.
The fix for this is to provide to setlocale a full locale name like
'es_ES', that's why I did it that way.
Do you see any better way to do this rather than probably filling a
bug report to Apple?
 #defaults read -g AppleLanguages
( es, fr, en, de, ja, it, nl, sv, nb, da, fi, pt, "zh-Hans", "zh-
