I'm not sure what exactly your problem is, but here's what I've done;
hopefully some part of this will answer your question. :P

Define your actions with an enum:

enum {

And then the item factory entries are like this:
        { N_("/_File/_Foo"), NULL, foo_cb, ACTION_FOO },

You can then retrieve those menu items via:

item = gtk_item_factory_get_widget_by_action(item_factory, ACTION_FOO);

Be sure that those strings get passed through gettext, too.
This is the function for it:

        gettext_translate_func, NULL, NULL);

Where gettext_translate_func is defined like this:

gettext_translate_func(const gchar *path, gpointer data) {
    return gettext(path);
