Description unhammer+dill 2019-02-11 09:34:34 UTC
In Northern Sámi as used in Norway at least (sme_NO), both sides of quotations use the RIGHT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK ” (codepoint  8221 / 0x201d).

Currently, Writer autocorrects the left side to LEFT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK as in English.

At least present in Ubuntu package 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.2

As a source for this,
https://www.sametinget.no/content/download/870/file/Riekta%C4%8D%C3%A1llinr%C3%A1vvagat.pdf by the Sámi parliament, top of page 22 mentions says 

  Sámegielas čállit daid seammaládje go ruoŧa-, dáro- ja
  suomagielas, ná: ”sátni”, muhto eŋgelasgielas dat čállojuvvojit ná: “word”.

(which translates to
  In Sámi, the tradition is as in Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish like so: ”word”, while in English ones does like so: “word”.
Comment 2 Eike Rathke 2019-02-15 12:38:52 UTC
That is because we currently don't have locale data for any Sami locale, of which there are many

    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_NORTHERN_NORWAY,        "se", "NO", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_INARI,                 "smn", "FI", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_LULE_NORWAY,           "smj", "NO", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_LULE_SWEDEN,           "smj", "SE", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_NORTHERN_FINLAND,       "se", "FI", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_NORTHERN_SWEDEN,        "se", "SE", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_SKOLT,                 "sms", "FI", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_SOUTHERN_NORWAY,       "sma", "NO", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_SAMI_SOUTHERN_SWEDEN,       "sma", "SE", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_USER_SAMI_KILDIN_RUSSIA,    "sjd", "RU", k0    },
    { LANGUAGE_USER_SAMI_PITE_SWEDEN,      "sje", "SE", k0    },
