If LitNLat is happy to send over a blank (English to English) translation file, I'd be happy to make the fix and upload it here with instructions. I'm pretty sure I could do it without, but that would involve me going and manually removing every text string from a previously translated file which would take days, and I'm just not that helpful a person.

I've done a quick 'proof of principle' test and it all worked fine. Before I go through and make the changes (it'll likely be Monday / Tuesday before I can post the results), I figured I might as well afford you the opportunity to change some of the others as well!
Eg, do you want "All English" or "American English" for the thesaurus search?
Do you want me to change the Dictionary.com search to Collins Dictionary? If so do you want British English or American English?

I"ve tweeted and posted on my own FB page with the appropriate links so DMJ can see it. I'll leave it to him to decide whether to re-publish on the official pages... they're not always keen on tips that involve lifting the hood and tinkering with the engine.
