I found some mixed spanish translations in menus, when the user interface is set to english, "Guardar" for "save", "guardar como" for "save as..." and "Guardar copia" for "Save copy as..."
Steps to Reproduce:
0.Set the user interface to english
1.Open any type of new file, like writer
2.Open the File menu
3.See the Save options Save, Save as... and Save copy as... they have the spanish translations.
Also in the save icon, the "Save as..." option is also in spanish
Changing the user interface to spanish, some of the options are in english, like open remote file and save remote file.
The user interface should all be in the language set in the language options

Writer menu in Spanish
Hm, I don't have the exact same issue, but changing the UI language of my separate-installed 184.108.40.206 alpha1 (x64) / Windows 7 to Spanish shows some menu items in English.
Seems like most of them are the same ones that stayed Spanish when you switched to English UI.

It’s an alpha. Don’t expect alphas to be fully localized. That happens later in the development process.
Everything you see in English are strings that have changed relatively recently (even things not immediately visible, such as the accelerator key) in the master branch and have not yet been transferred to the .po translation files.
I don't know how this works in the background, but the original report is about the English translation not being there when UI is changed to English. I assume English (USA) is the basis of all translations, and should always be present.
Additionally, I admit my example was somewhat different, but at first glance it seems related (the menu items involved are almost the same), and I assume basic strings like "Save" wouldn't be changed.
Then again, as I wrote, I don't know how things work there, so if someone can give an explanation for this particular behavior, I'm not going to argue.
The problem is that LibreOffice is getting the language for these 4 items from the OS language. The same happens in my Windows 10 Portuguese laptop. If I switch to English UI those 4 items remain in Portuguese.
Inversely on a Windows XP English machine, switching LibreOffice to a Portuguese UI will show those 4 items in English.
This is a regression from branch 5.2
May I edit the title of the Bug? This is NOT a Spanish specific problem. It happens on any Windows version (tested on XP, 7 and 10) where the user is changing to a UI language different from the OS language.
Confirmed on Windows XP, LO 18.104.22.168 Spanish strings in German UI, also in German offline-help. I checked now again and it is OK. I mean it the problem is, I installed several offline-helps, probably the problem is the order of installation of the help files, but I am not sure. I dont get why the menu is now OK. If I remember correctly, I reinstalled the German help-file. My Windows is in Spanish.

When will the bug be fixed? Some of the strings - Save, Save as... and Save copy as... are often used. I am translator for Upper Sorbian and Lower Sorbian. There is no operating system in these languages, the most often used OS language is German. So those menuitems are shown in German.

sorry for the late reply. The bug is already fixed for Sorbian languages for a long time. Thanks.
Good to hear, thanks for the feedback!
Robert, does this still occur for you with a recent release? (6.2.3)

I've verified all the translations and found that they are OK for Spanish and English, as for the original problem reported.
Verified fixed also under Win7 Pro x86 using version 188.8.131.52
OS Language en_US, UI Language pt_PT
All menu items show correctly on both languages
Let's use status WORKSFORME, as the fixing change is unknown.
