Happens with Hebrew interface on version 5.4.1 as well.
Comment 2 Lior Kaplan 2017-10-08 13:31:51 UTC
I tried to find something related in the code to RID_SVXSTR_COLOR_VIOLET but didn't see anything for RTL interfaces.
Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-10-13 01:12:48 UTC
Maxim, Gabor: Any thoughts on why this is happening?
Comment 4 Gabor Kelemen 2017-10-13 05:47:58 UTC
I'll look into this once home from the conference.

I have seen such when I accidentally made some holes on the translation handling code and it was unable to match a color name with a translation in method SvxUnoConvertResourceStringBuiltIn :

But no idea why does it happen only for some languages and not others.

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated some days ago, I don't reproduce this.
Noticing tdf#117969 and its fix, do you reproduce this with LO version >=
