This is also how it's done in Nautilus.

I also don't like changing the UI for only one language very much.

Btw. what do you think about my suggestion to do it in the same way it is
done in Nautilus ?

EOG                             Nautilus

Create New _Window              _New Window
_Open Image                     _Open
_Close This Window              _Close Window
