Localization on mac

What is the actual state of localization? I have been unable to get them working on my bundle attempts. I've played around with LANG and LC_CTYPE but I'm still not really sure which should be changed to display the UI in another language.

Most translation files are very incomplete so far anyway, or am I mistaken? I'm not entirely sure if my inability to get a translated UI is a bug, due to missing translated strings, wrong location of the mo files, wrong env vars or because I should be using lproj files instead of mo files. (I've tried modifying the po files with test strings but am not seeing my changes)

I haven't really been able to find much info on where this might be going wrong, anyway you might be able to help? Maybe explain the logic of how the translation engine is supposed to work (and which env vars trump which)

Keep in mind, while I'm not really fluent in Python (not familiar with idiomatic ways to do stuff and such, in case I ask a dumb question) I do know other languages so I expect I should be able to follow along at least enough to properly understand with a bit of side-reading.
