Hi Francois,

I've dealed with similar problems with appinstall tests and german
localization. I first tried to make generic language switches for system
  dialogues and for the specific application. Austin and Dan finally
pointed out it's better to find ways which are language independent,
i.e. the button number or other dialog parameters.

Maybe it helps you further.
