How to change menu text with Tkinter?

I am making a little Tkinter GUI app that needs to be in several
languages (english, french, etc.), adjustable at runtime via a menu
pick to select the language. The only way I can see to change text in
the menus entries is to destroy them and recreate them usiing different
labels. This seems very clunky though, and there must be a better way.
Can anyone offer any pointers or a short example for how to do this?
