MoManager handles .desktop files

The first release of MoManager manages gettext'ed scripts, announced earlier:

Now I have added support for creation and editing of .desktop menu files. Woof commit:

But, I need some help. For testing purposes, I have got LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 in /etc/profile. Applications/scripts that have a 'de' .mo file translate ok. However, the JWM menu does not translate. Even though there are some .desktop files with Name[de]= entries, only the English Name= entry is displaying.
Have any of you guys who use non-English locale encountered this problem, and more importantly know the cause?
...I wonder if I have stuffed up the LANG setting in 'fixmenus'?
EDIT: yes, I had a moment of dumbness. MoManager was calling 'fixmenus' with LANG=C. Fixed, will upload to online Woof repo soon.

JWM menu
It's fixmenus problem. I haven't tested your i18n-ed petget yet but in my version of petget I have removed LANG=C in scripts with fixmenus.

jwm -restart

should make menu items translated.
Also in some cases menu jumps to English by itself so I have made startup script to check and fix it if necessary.
grep 'label="Desktop"' ~/.jwmrc

if [ $? -eq 0 ]
then yaf-splash -bg orange -close never -text "$(gettext 'Updating menu, screen will flicker...')" &
jwm -restart
kill $proc_id

In normal state I have 'Desktop' translated. If it's not translated then fixmenus is run.

Re petget LANG
yes, I took the LANG=C out of the petget scripts. In particular, the one in
