Probably could be done in the gimp.desktop and other files that apply
for that cases.

The rotates should keep the degrees, "rotate 90 degrees right" and
"rotate 90 degrees left" (or CW and CCW maybe, but that is criptic
that way or long if expanded to words), that way you know it is a
fixed rotation, not a free rotation, it is clear about what it does.

But you have to check what flip horizontal is, the proper name it
should get is "rotate 180 degrees", it is not a horizontal flip, but
"double flip"... which is even more complex than "rotate 180 degrees"
to understand. It also makes the menu items look as a group.
