The same problem was here with Russian language. Even two problems,
actually. First, there's a problem with declension: in Russian, you need
another grammatical case (Instrumental) after "Открыть" ("Open with")
verb. This problem has been solved by using "Открыть в программе" ("Open
in a program") as a translation for "Open with", so that we could use
applications names in Nominative case. After that, however, we were
merely obliged to use quotes, since the word "program" actually required
it. So, in 2.26 for some archive, e.g., I see a Russian equivalent of
"Open in a program «Archive Manager»", which is more or less ok,
although a bit clumsy.
