From the Website:

"Monolingual is a program for removing unnecessary language resources from macOS, in order to reclaim several hundred megabytes of disk space. I don't know about you, but I use my computer in only one (human) language — English. And I'm willing to bet that you do too, albeit perhaps not English. So why do you have a bunch of localization files for the operating system filling up your hard drive? Enter Monolingual — a handy utility for reclaiming your space for more useful things… like international mp3 files, email or whatever you like."

"Version 1.3.9 is the last version for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)."

Two programs in one, really. See scrnshot, Languages & Architecture. I've had progs become corrupted by removing intel architecture from UB's running on PPC and there's not much to be gained from architecture slimming anyway.

BUT, those foreign languages localizations are another story. Big benefit and low risk to doing that. The "space" saved ain't much, it's the added agility to the OS as a whole. Example: my Tiger OS with a bunch of apps installed is about 300,000 files and 100,000 folders. After going English-only, it slims down to about 200,000 files and 80,000 folders. Reduction of 1/3. So backing up and restoring an English-only OS runs through at a rate 1/3 faster.
