Yes ist does. Also things like Message boxes will be translated

The filedialogs depends on the platform. At least on unix you'll get a
translated Qt filedialog when you load the translations, but for example
on win32 you'd usually get the native dialog from win32 - which will of
course also be translated according to the win32 language settings.


It's lucky you're going so slowly, because you're going in the wrong direction.
