    "It is really a practical joke."

    May 27, 2014   |   By Catchalove

    Version: Monolingual 1.5.10

    Pros

    As it downloads & works once at a single Mac computer.

    Cons

    But the same dame downloads invariably a damaged file on the another computer with the same specifications.

    Summary

    Those, who have unlimited patience, may train their capacities up to the utmost with tis application.

    Updated on May 28, 2014

    Their "secret": your GateKeeper must be turned off for the moment of installation, and then it works as expected.

    "Beware - not worth it."

    September 14, 2013   |   By jamiedoll

    Version: Monolingual 1.5.7

    Pros

    It removes languages you don't really need

    Cons

    IT KILLED MY ADOBE CS AND MS OFFICE! Made them unusable. Kudos to Time Machine - got my expensive programs back!

    Summary

    Adding programs to safe list, deselecting them, too much hassle. 3-4gb of saved space - size of a cheap flash drive vs $1000's of software - is not worth it.

    "Safe to Use with Mountain Lion"

    September 20, 2012   |   By Rasputin63

    Version: Monolingual 1.5.2

    Pros

    Very easy to use
    Harmless to apps

    Cons

    Takes a while to complete. On my i7 equipped iMac it took about 15 minutes to finish. Little longer on an i5.

    Summary

    I've used this app with two relatively recent vintage iMacs (mid 2010 & late 2011) running under both Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion with absolutely no ill effects. The app reported saving me approximately 3.4GB of space. I didn't run the architecture function as I use DivX which likes the PowerPC option.

    "Great app.Reclaimed 3.5GB"

    September 06, 2011   |   By otpboss

    Version: Monolingual 1.4.5

    Pros

    Hi, I ran monolingual through my mac os x 10.5 it took just over an hour, boring. But it cleaned out 3.5GB of useless language files etc. I wasn't sure about the architectures so I didn't delete any of them at all. Over all great app. Thanks cnet

    Cons

    Took just over an hour. Boring. If that is a con?

    "Removes all unwanted language, and architecture files."

    December 18, 2010   |   By Ras-x

    Version: Monolingual 1.4.5

    Pros

    Tick the unwanted language files & architectures, Initially you will save Gigabytes of space. F the developer is to be congratulated for keeping this beauty up to date.

    Cons

    Beware if you tell it to remove the language that you work in. You will need to do a full OS reinstallation - NO way around it. But remember, it does ask you to check.

    Summary

    This is a wonderful app that works, and works fast, effectively and is FREE! Once you have chosen what you want removed and hit the GO button, it asks you to check - a nice reassuring thing! An annoying little personal quirk, once I have established what files i want removed, every time I run it on my iMac (3.06 Ghz), it remembers exactly what to remove and keep. Yet on my 15" Macbook pro, it insists on forgetting my language preferences and i have to check about a dozen unwanted languages each time. A small glitch that i suspect is local to my machine. The developer is to be congratulated on keeping pace with the architectural changes and is good at bringing forth appropriate updates.

    "could have been my fault, crashed my MacBook"

    November 01, 2010   |   By joesnow

    Version: Monolingual 1.4.4

    Pros

    easy to install and easy to destroy your system files

    Cons

    I ran the program, selecting to keep all English versions, but after running first iTunes would not load (therefore could not synch my iPhone or iPad), then Kernel Panic ensued and machine would not start up. TimeMachine to rescue, luckily

    Summary

    "Buyer beware" , even though it was free, cost me a day of my life to restore and return to Prior to Monolingual
