iCleanLanguage is a simple application that safely removes unwanted localizations, or language files, from your Mac computer. On OSX, these files can take up as much as 4 GB of space and, unless you wish to run your Mac in these languages, they are unnecessary. iCleanLanguage does this by scanning for these files and then selectively removing them. iCleanLanguage is different from similar applications because it allows you to remove files from specific locations or applications, gives a full report at the end of a session, allows you to exclude certain applications and folders, and can

I asked the developer about 10.8 compatibility and received this reply:

Sorry but at this time iClean will not work on 10.8. I wrote it in an outdated language many years ago and it will take great effort to translate. That said, I will probably get around to it this Fall since several others have asked too.

OK, this is free, but the provider clearly wants to get paid.

I used this after using four other utilities (all fee based) that claim to be able to remove ALL non-English software. Well, this utility said I had 1,666 files left. Wow! This software is either great or highly flawed.

The very next morning, I ran the utility again and it said I had hundreds of non-English files. Where did these files come from? Why do non-English files seem to regenerate? Do ANY of these utilities work?

In the PC world you can buy multiple utilities to fix registry issues and run them one after another. Each one will always claim to be fixing your software.

As a user, I must take the position that either: (1) I am being lied to, or (2) There are things happening inside computers I do not fully comprehend, or (3) These products are just ways to suck money from me.

PRO: Selectable path for language cleaning, stable in my tests
CON: Very, very slow - near unusable slow searching task + cleaning task

Has anyone tried it under SL? I have XSlimmer and Monolingual but have yet to run any of them. If you search for .lproj files, there are LOTS of additional language files scattered throughout the apps and system. Some known problems such as Acrobat, which will not run if languages are deleted, are listed, but what about other apps/system files? Any advice/experience welcomed.

More options than Monolingual, but also more CPU, and seems to be slower for the same result (it finds nothing more).
