Since FileMaker supports localization, most messages like that can not be modified as they may already be hardcoded into FileMaker somewhere.

You can put your own values in any language that you want as regular values in your value list. A script performed by a trigger can check for "other" and open a popover for adding a value not in the list.
This can be done even with field based value lists.

As far as I know, there isn't a version of FileMaker Pro that runs in Icelandic, so you don't have the option of simply changing the application language.
The "normal" edition includes a good handful of languages, and then you can get special editions from WinSoft International for a number of others.
If you want to be able to support other languages, or be able to change the language in FileMaker-hardcoded messages like these, you are going to need to program your own "other" interface, as philmodjunk says.
Note that this means, that you won't be able to have FileMaker value lists using Custom values, but rather have virtually all value lists be field-based. It's an unfortunately amount of extra work, but with the limitations of value lists in the current version of FileMaker, that's the method I've mostly resigned to.
If you embark on that road, you are also going to want to have a look at the "magic value list" technique: https://filemakerhacks.com/2012/07/25/magic-value-lists/.
Ok, thank you people, I will take a look at this.
Sounds like a bit of work just to "localize" one word? :-)
