UPDATE for patch 2.304.
I just wrote a little guide to get the CoH Beta working with non-english versions of the game.
I hope it's ok i post it down here.
I will describe this for the german version, but i think you should use this on every localization by just take over the file names of your localization.
e.g. EngineGerman.sga -> EngineFrench.sga or whatever.
Make sure you have no mods installed that corrupts the core files like the RelicCOH.module (custom keys) or any model packs that changes art archives or whatever.
Install the Beta Client available here
If you have any problems installing the beta, look at the error message and try to figure out which file might be the problem.
If you can't figure out, you better make a fresh reinstall of CoH and ry it again.
If you have installed the beta without any errors copy "...CoH"\Engine\Archives\EngineGerman.sga
to "...CoH Beta"\Engine\Archives\
and rename it to EngineEnglish.sga.
If it doesn't already exist, create the folder "...CoH Beta"\Engine\Locale\english\
and copy the "...CoH"\Engine\Locale\german\RelicCOH.German.ucs in it
and rename it to RelicCOH.English.ucs.
Open the Locale.ini with an editor and change the "lang = german" to "lang = english".
save and close it.
Now the game is able to start up but the sound packets are missing.
Go to your [...COH]\WW2\Archives\ folder
Copy all files in there.
Now switch to the [...CoH Beta]\WW2\Archives\ folder.
Paste the copied packtes in here.
WARNING!: Do not overwrite the existing files. If your OS prompts you press "No".
Now the missing packtes are at the right place but with wrong name.
Exchange in all copied files the "German" with "English".
e.g. OFCoreSpeechGerman.sga -> OFCoreSpeechEnglish.sga
Now your Sound should work perfectly.
Start the game and and download the patch 2.301 (Do not try to patch, it won't work).
Remove the RelicCOH.English.ucs from the beta folder so that the Locale\English\ folder is empty.
Execute the patch located at
My Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes - Opposing Fronts MP Beta\patch\
After patching you can either copy the [...CoH]\Engine\Locale\German\RelicCOH.German.ucs
to [...CoH Beta]\Engine\Locale\ and rename it to RelicCOH.English.ucs.
(Note: This way you will have your buttons displayed in german, but many buttons will show you "$XXXXXXX No Key").
Or you just download the RelicCOH.English.ucs available here or here (Rapidshare) and copy it to [...CoH Beta]\Engine\Locale\ .
(Note: This way you will have all buttons displayed in english but no buttons with "$ No Key". I strongly advise you to use this method)
If you have downloaded and used my RelicCOH.English.ucs you can simply update the beta to latest version.
Have fun testing Team Automatch.
When the server is down do not wonder about the "No Media - Can't read Disc" error massage. The Beta client has no DVD check function and will only be playable while the server is online.
P.S. Thx to OnkelSam for your advise.
