The aren't AFAIK. The finder is localized and shows different folder
names if you run in another language (that's why there are
".localized" turds in several directories). Windows is the OS where
directory names actually do change depending on the language you
install it in.
The OSX implementation actually makes it possible to have several
accounts with different languages and have them all see their
localized version of folder names.
