    Consider right-clicking on the *.app and opting to open/view package contents.

    It may be that you can delete the language packs from there, though whether or not this will break the install I couldn't say for sure.

    Typically, applications compile with a 'lang' directory and inside these you'll find 'en-', 'fr-', 'it-'...

    Depends on the game, andf how the language data is stored. But in theory yes, your gains could be GB's or KB's depending on the title :)
