Yes, I do have a pending bug on this one. The problem is that TextMate 
currently doesn't “preview” the text being edited (given to it by the 
system), and that's why you don't see anything before you change line, 
switch to another input mode or similar (which makes the system commit 
the edit).

I can't give an ETA on when this will be fixed, but I can imagine it's 
frustrating for those who rely on these input methods, so I'll try not 
to have “the fix” pending for too long.

Currently not -- localization is quite a lot of extra work, especially 
with a program that evolves as fast as TextMate (each change in the GUI 
requires all localizations to be synchronized, which is a lot of manual 
mouse work if taking the Nib-route), and I'm under the impression that 
the majority of TextMate users are running their applications in 
English (but I'm only guessing here).

So I'm thinking localization is something I'll support for v1.3 or 
similar as the final touch ;)
