[PyQt] Internationalization problem

reading through Mark Summerfield's book I've tried to localise my
appliation. This works fine for my own translation but not for the one
from Trolltech (qt_de.qm). This means that for instance all my menus
are in German but the close, maximize, minimize and restore buttons in
the upper right edge are still in English.
This is an excerpt from my script:
qtTranslator = QtCore.QTranslator()
appTranslator = QtCore.QTranslator()
And this is the part from the resource file:
"We don't have to worry about translating the buttons in this case
because we are using standard buttons and Qt has translations for
these.[*] If we had used our own texts we would have had to use tr()
on them, like any other user-visible string.
[*]Trolltech provides translations for some languages, such as French
and German, [...]. These translations are in Qt's (not PyQt's)
translations directory; search your file system for qt_fr.qm for
example, to find the French translation."
Does anyone have a hint why it's not working though?
