Based on http://update.omnigroup.com/¹ 72% of users run their system
in English, and the next 17% are using French, German, and Japanese
(so ~90% of users are spread out over only 4 different languages).
Most French and German computer users (who use TextMate for
programming) likely have no problem using an English interface. I do
see a noticeable amount of sales from JP (despite TextMate’s poor
support for CJK), so that would likely be the most relevant
translation -- but with German and French translations being relevant
on “number of users of the language”.
¹ I expect my users to be slightly more technical², and at least here
in Scandinavia, technical users tend to favor an English interface.
² For example OmniGroup show 21% of their users are on Leopard. My
numbers show 50% of users has upgraded.
