As your friend noticed, it's Not That Simple (TM) and while it is one of the oldest feature requests, it is also one of the least-asked-for, so there is no priority for us to implement it. However,  the long-term development plans for OpenMPT include porting the user interface from MFC to Qt, and Qt has excellent built-in translation facilities which would make translations much easier. With the current MFC code base, it is not viable for us developers to work on this feature.

Native Mac and Linux versions are in the realm of possibility after porting to Qt, yes. But please keep in mind that these are (very) long-term plans, and even once the Qt port is done, it is not guaranteed that we can offer pre-compiled Mac versions since none of the OpenMPT developers own Apple hardware. It's possible that these versions would have to be compiled by the user.
