Is scripting in extendscript language-dependent?

The title pretty mush says it. I have built some scripts but the problem is that they only work in english AE. I would like to change that, but i don't really know where is the mistake. Is the scripting part language-depenmdent or only the expression part where i adress layers/properties?

As far as I know it's only the properties which are language localized in the UI that you need to watch out for. The scripts/expressions should refer to parameters by index or param ID and effects by match name rather than UI name.
Here is a web page I've used that lists match names for a lot of the AE standard effects ;
http://www.redefinery.com/ae/fundamentals/effects/matchnames/index.php
and there is an even more comprehensive list from David Torno available as a pdf download here ;
https://www.provideocoalition.com/aftereffects-plugin-match-names/
and on that same page a script is available which can output the match names for all plugins installed on your machine.
and here is a script (available for sale) that can go read through the whole project and update expressions ;
