Every text in the menu, settings, .... Any skin. Any language. Doesn't matter which version, can be the latest.

I will rephrase my question.

When you choose language in "System - Appearance - Settings - International - Language", XBMC will translate any text from English to that language (if translation exists) and also:
* display date/time and units (temperature, speed) according to the rules for that language
* choose subtitle charset for that language (so you can see non ANSI characters that exists in that language)
* choose dvd menu/audio/subtitle language
* etc ...

What I want is everything except translate part. I want English texts on the screen (because, often, I better understand English terminology than translations in my mother tongue), but everything else to be language specific.
