I will answer only this question, and leave the other one to someone else.
You could also change the language in the preferences dialog. But it will
still require a restart of the application for the language change to take
effect. As far as I know no one has tried to implement on-the-fly language
change, but it has been on the todo-list for quite long. I fear that it will
be very difficult, and will require to rebuild many many structures. This I
fear will have impact on stability and flexibility of the program, and quite
frankly people should not need to change language more than once so I don't
think it is worth it.
As for the wxwindows question. Wxwindows can be compiled against both gtk1
and gtk2 as well as quite a few other gui toolkits (windows mac etc). As a
result of this wxwindows has a unicode mode and a non-unicode mode. Vlc
should handle both, and both should handle non-latin languages even though
there are known limitations for this in gtk1
Thanks for your effort
