Although they don't really count as real compilers, as far as I know
(because I never used them) some office applications like MS Office
did localize the keywords (or only function names?) in their scripting
languages. Causing a lot of trouble, of course, when people tried to
move documents between different language versions of the same office
suite...


I also saw local initiatives of translating programming languages for
the use of children. LOGO comes to mind first.
