Description Mike Kaganski 2020-07-07 11:01:57 UTC
In, using some non English UI (I tested Russian), open Help->About, and hover over the copy button. It brings the tooltip "Copy all version information in English". But pressing it copies it into the clipboard in the language of the UI.

It could be a problem of not-yet-localized tooltip in the Russian RC build (which would turn "English" into "Russian"); but actually I hoped that the button would really do what it advertises: copy the version info in English, irrespective of current UI language. Otherwise, why the mention of the language would be needed at all in the tooltip? it looks redundant if it's expected to copy what user sees. And if it uses English always, it's very useful for pasting the English result to bug trackers and other places which are used by multi-lingual community.
