Nice, isn't it? This was one of the reasons I had been looking forward 
to 10.2 :-)

This is obviously a bug in the Finder. To avoid it, just uncheck 
"Always Show Suffix" (or whatever it's called in the English Finder, I 
use the German one :-) in the Finder preferences, and voilà, all the 
nice translations are active again :-)

I already filed this bug with Apple's feedback site, but of course 
everybody's welcome to do so again.

      Ciao, Thomas
