The Right Way to do it would be using the LocalePlugin, as Etoys does.

If you need to patch up the bundle you could use the symlink trick  
again, the actual Scratch.ini would live in data/. Thus the language  
(and other settings possibly) that the user choses would persist. When  
running for the first time, the startup script could generate an  
initial Scratch.ini for the right language.
