Different menu options and labels showing different languages on the same screen. Applies to OS X menu / task bar, IDE option menus, labels, etc.
== Steps to Replicate
Open Xamarin Studio without amending default User Interface Language.
== Expected Behaviour
IDE displays in English (or in native OS language? Unsure.)
== Actual Behaviour
Different menu options / labels are in English, French, German, Korean (?) and possibly others.
== Resolution / workaround
Manually set language:
Xamarin Studio > Preferences... > Visual Style > User Interface Language > English (or desired language)
== Other Information
See screenshots. Presumably on latest Stable but unconfirmed. Customer using macOS Sierra.

I don't see the issue the customer is having locally. I'm on Sierra too. One peculiar behaviour I see is that the (Default) setting of XS will not pick up the _primary_ language.
In my tested case, it was English as primary and French as secondary, and default ended up as French in XS.
I don't see mixed language. Also, it works just fine in El Capitan.
Update: The customer has English, French, German, Korean in the language pane of OS X. We need to see why this happens. The customer's issue has been resolved for now.
As per comment 4, changing the bug status into 'Resolved'
I have checked this issue with builds (XamarinStudio-22.214.171.12414) attached with card on OS X Sierra following by the bellow steps and observed that its working fine.
Case 1:-When Manually set language from XS.
2.Goto Prefences->Visual Style
3.Set any language from User interface lanuage dropdown.
4.Check task bar, IDE option menus, labels.
Case 2:-When default lanuage set from XS and XS take OS native lanuage.
2.Goto Prefences->Visual Style
3.Set "Default" from User interface lanuage dropdown.
4.Change Mac OS native language English to other language.
6.Check task bar, IDE option menus, labels.

I will verify this issue once it will fix in release builds.
Hey, your XS version is supposed to be 5393 (from the trello board).
On the other hand, please use the test case written above when testing with Language = Default.
In the System preferences, have exactly this:
English - Primary
And test with that. On El Capitan, it'll pick up English correctly, on Sierra it'll show mixd languages as in the screenshot in Comment #0.
Sorry about the XS version, I looked at the wrong build page. Disregard that part.
Reopening as the patch hasn't landed on master or c8 - the PR bot will resolve the bug when the PR is merged.
C8 PR was merged.
Master is still open.
I have verified this issue on macOS Sierra with XamarinStudio-126.96.36.19929.dmg - 105cb64488156fa2754873755a5c7dfe428bd22c
