With our current implementation of subtitles this is unfortunately not 
possible. We are however working on a new solution that should work for 
you. This still requires some more developing, so you will have to be 
patient with us and use MPlayer until then.

That is because we don't use Apple's form of localizing. We use a 
methed called gettext, something which can be used on almost all of our 
supported platforms (Win32, linux AND Mac OS X).

You can register to vlc-devel at videolan.org mailinglist 
(http://developers.videolan.org/lists.html) and then when we put out 
the call for the localization of the new 0.6.0 version, you will 
receive an email with instructions. It really isn't that hard.
