This is definitively a case for the dummy folder called 

Name your menu "Preferences" in english! and place an empty folder
as described above (without the quotes, of course!) here:
(Control-click on the Revolution application...)

Then RR will also copy this resource into your standalone*** and you 
have "Preferences" and "Quit NameofStandalone" in French :-)

***Not tested with RR 2.5, but should work...

This works with german and any other language supported by OS X...
NOT tested with non-latin laguages/unicode menus!!!

Hope that helps...
