getAvailableFontFamilyNames returning font names in English on Windows XP

I'm using GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames(userLocale) to retrieve font names. userLocale changes as per the user's login language. I expect the font names in respective login language. But the names appear only in English. Only one or two names in the list are translated according to the locale. I'm using JDK1.6. Is this a known bug? OR there's some way to translate the font list in language of our choice? Please let me know.
