I guess my question comes down to, is it localized in that case or is it
a user setting. For instance, we show localized template names but if I
named a file "Letter" it shouldn't be translated in the file dialog. At
the point of looking at the filter label in the file, it could very well
be something the user has put in. If they called a filter "Snow" then
we shouldn't translate it even if we have a translation for "Snow."
