go to system preferences / language and text / language and use the edit button to uncheck the box for Catalan and restart.

Thank you so much, Tom! That actually worked. Now, how the **** all those languages (and not just Catalan) ended up there!??

The mixture of languages is just a bug Apple has to fix.
As for why there are so many available, its because Apple gets a huge share of its revenue from foreign sales and all its products are multilingual by default.

Oh, actually I meant how all those languages ended up being activated on my System Preferences. I didn't mention on my previous post but besides Catalan there were russian, korean, romanian, etc. I would never check these many languages (specially because I don't speak any of them).
And it looks like a bug indeed. Catalan wasn't my preferred language on the list and I've seen it only on Xcode. Thanks again.

They are all 30 activated by default when OS X is installed. The "preferred" language just goes at the top of the list. That ensures that nobody has to take special action to activate their language to get things to work right. Every user account can be in a different language if you want.
