1) you can't change it anywhere except the source code, though what
shows up in non-english locales obviously depends on the .po files
as well. these "mistakes" happen because, necessarily, the entire
set of strings appearing when showing a nested submenu are never
defined on a set of adjacent lines of code (sometimes, they
are not even in the same file).
2) ardour attempts to follow the GNOME HiG, except for places where
the orientation of the HiG towards desktop/consumer applications
negatively impacts usability for professional users.
3) i doubt if there will ever be any "rules" for the Ardour GUI beyond
the HiG specs
