That's not a FreeCAD bug. It's a bug in the system file dialog. What desktop environment do you use?

When Qt determines the storage path of e.g. QDesktopServices::storageLocation(QDesktopServices::DesktopLocation) then it reads in the file user-dirs.dirs which usually is under $HOME/.config or where the environment variable XDG_CONFIG_HOME points to. See also

So, the user-dirs.dirs file contains the correctly translated text but because in the main() function "putenv("LANG=C");" is used to fix an OCC bug Qt fails to read in any non-ASCII characters. This leads to a path which doesn't exist and that's why the item is greyed out.
