Depends on the preference setting.  There is a new mode to only set
LC_MESSAGES and leave the rest of the locale alone (to investigate
issues with plugins, see the other branch in this email thread)

It needs to be explicitly enabled in Preferences > Global > Translations
The default hasn't changed and Ardour still sets LC_ALL. So there should
be no change WRT to translations compared to prior MSVC builds.

Since gettext() chooses the translation based on LC_MESSAGES [1], I'm
curious how this works with MSVC builds if there's no LC_MESSAGES.
