Did you know that language localization files can occupy several GB of space on your hard drive most of which you'll never need. Monolingual removes these from your hard drive in a few clicks.

However, it should be used with extreme caution. Even though you may only use English on your Mac, other applications may sometimes need to access or use foreign language files to work properly. The result is that you should remove only those languages that you're absolutely sure you have no need for. It goes without saying that you should be very careful not to remove English files as this could seriously damage OS X's ability to operate and boot properly.

Monolingual has a very simple interface which allows you to remove languages from Language Packs, Input Menus and Architectures. You can select and de-select the languages you want to keep and remove. It's very simple to use an removal takes a matter of seconds. Monolingual is a great tool for saving space on your hard drive although it should be used with caution.
