This may sound silly but what about replacing ~/Desktop ~/Templates
~/Pictures ... by ~/.desktop ~/.templates ~/.pictures

Then we can create symbolic links to these directories using the current
locale, so ~/Bureau would point to ~/.desktop if I log in in French, and
~/Bilder would point to ~/.pictures in German.

Of course we would need to store these translated locations somewhere so
every app could retrieve them easily.

I'm sorry to add noise to the list if this is irrelevant.
