Not knowing the product, I can only say that hard drives are really cheap and the possibility exists that you may cripple some system software or other software as well.
I would think that a second hard drive would be a better solution then possibly comprimising your Mac.
A Freeware product that removes resources from your Mac can be a very scary thing.

I belive you can avoid installing most language stuff when doing a custom install of osx.
Like the previous poster I would avoid something like this unless I had seen several good reviews from people I trusted.

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?

I agree with all. I'm still with OS 10.3.9 here at the house, waiting for the next package after 10.4. (I like 10.4--I have it at the office.) When I install, I'm leaving out the languages.

I used DeLocalizer when I was running on an old G4, and the amount of disk space regained was most pleasing.
Like the others, I now omit the languages during installation. But if MonoLingual works as well as DeLocalizer, I'd not be scared to try it.
