Windows registry and locilisation

Hi all,

I've a quick question about the windows registry. Does anyone know if the registry keys for windows special folders are the same for different languages? My app needs to find the location of the "Saved Games" folder in windows 7 and this cannot reliably be found any other way that I can find so reading the registry is my best chance.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
