Moving on to more general theories on the matter, I believe that localized
dialects of programming languages are always a bad idea.
I totally agree.
However there are things that can be translated to other languages, and
that is documentation, error messages and warnings.
The latter two require that we standardize exception types and messages,
and provide some means to load different localizations.
If somebody could take on that project, that would be really great for
non-English speakers (and would also help the standard, English
implementation, because standardize exceptions make testing of
meaningful errors much easier).
That would be a real benefit for the Perl 6 landscape at large, and
probably not all too difficult (I'm sure that implementors of compilers
and STD.pm will help with technical details where necessary, I for one
would do my best to integrate such an effort into Rakudo).
