How can we translate Desktop Action Names? Is it supported by quickly, launchpad?

You should be able to translate the Action's Name property just like you can elsewhere in the .desktop file. Usually this means using _Name with the untranslated string in, then using whatever tool it is that applies translations to .desktop files.
