There are several issues, starting with the menu, palette and more. Lets focus on the menu first. Basically when running Mac OS X in Hebrew, MuseScore does not show the menu R2L.

To soon to close it Jojo. There is still work to do on the score text R2L implementation (title, lyrics, dynamics) and also there are some debug warning messages with the string argument parsing getting confused.

There are other bugs related to right-to-left languages. Especially text entry on the canvas does not honor right to left. I also get some runtime warnings about QString arg() arguments which are not parsed property.

@Thomas: Ah, OK, I though you accidenially closed it due to the commit and your post having crossed.
@Werner: These might be due to bogus translations on Transifex, lacking the placeholder %1 etc.

I'd prefer a new issue. Also, it won't be easy to tackle R2L in score text (lyrics, ...), but it's good to have an open issue for it.
