OSX gets this right, from what I remember. The applications folder is
always called "Applications" on disk, but the displayed name in Finder
(and open/save dialogs) is specific to the language settings of the
current user.

This is true for system wide folders and folders in users home dirs.

I do not know what MS does with their "Program Files" folder.
