I suggest add language selection to main menu.
If a user selected a language that he does not know by
mistake, It will be hard for him to go back to the right
I like FileZilla very much. Wish it get better and better:)

I don't think there should be a language menu at all. One usually only set the language once and then never again.

FileZilla 3 stores all settings in an XML file, so maybe add some instructions to the FileZilla Wiki about how to reset the language by editing the XML file. Or maybe add a command line paramter --skip-language or --system-language which will ignore the language set in configuration file but instead use the system default language.

Changing language also changes locale. Since local affects things like collations (sorting) and number formatting, changing the local at runtime is generally a bad idea. The language and thus locale needs to be set at program start and cannot be changed at runtime without causing problems in many places.
