This is strange. All other platforms are localized by default. 
Defaulting to english when an application is perfectly localized seems 
like a very strange thing to do. I can imagine this is quite confusing 
for newcomers, making Geany look like it's lacking translations (i.e. 
poor quality).

Also, I didn't think MAC users are that special. I would think they 
would also prefer the programs they use to be in their language?

Best regards.
