figured it out: it should be
${mytags:localeString(language, "navbar.menubutton.label.users", "")}

not

${mytags:localeString(${language}, "navbar.menubutton.label.users", "")}

This is a mistake a lot of people make -- thinking that ${} is some sort of operator. It's not. It encloses the entire EL expression and should never be nested within one.
