Monolingual is said to be "a program for removing unnecessary language resources from Mac OS X, in order to reclaim several hundred megabytes of disk space. It requires at least Mac OS X 10.3.9 (Panther) and also works on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)." It's freeware.

Nah... you don't hurt anything by getting rid of the extra languages or leaving them out altogether.
I used Monolingual way back a few years ago, and it didn't hurt anything. But since then, I always just install the system without the extra languages. Sure, disk drives are big enough these days that it doesn't matter all that much, but I'm absolutely positive I will not ever need five variants of Chinese on my Mac, or Russian Cyrillic. Why devote about 600 MB of space to them?
