The Mindows installation of BrOffice stille carries the name LibreOffice for the icons in the desktop an the menus.
It should be BrOffice.
See image attached.

Suggestion to merge BROffice to LibreOffice
I think is better try change slowly the brand "BROffice" to "LibreOffice", so, at this time maybe is a good idea add the warning on splash screen like this:
A suitable from LibreOffice
Check image attached.
This is necessary to users know that BROffice is just a LibreOffice.
Releases after release, BROffice must decrease the logo size and the name LibreOffice must increase, until the logo BROffice will be removed.
Olivier - if this is a blocker for you, you need to add a comment to the 3.3 tracker bug here:
Almost all of these strings that mention the wrong name, and in the Brazilian translations; as such - of course, I can go manually changing them, but this should mostly be just a matter of finding / fixing Brazilian strings. I can have a look into that later. I am not certain that we can fix the MSI / un-install stuff for 3.3 - but lets see.
Renato: the decision was made, before TDF was formed to keep the BrOffice brand for Brazil, for the forseable future - it has great name recognition there, and gives us a nice clean switch from OO.o to LibreOffice; so we won't do that I think :-)
I believe the menu/desktop icons come from Shortcut.idt.pt-BT, prodding that.
Shortcut.idt.pt-BR is generated by solenv/bin/installer/modules/windows/shortcut.pm (2nd half of create_shortcut_table). It gets the strings from the Name property of FolderItems in the scp2 - which is un-translated; digging there.

patch to fix window start menu / shortcuts
Attached patch to handle the shortcuts; I could use some sanity checking, it works for me - at least when generating the .idt files - giving the right translation for pt-BR, and the original ones for en-US and de (eg.).
Whether it works of course, is a different question :-) lets see.

patch to fix windows BrOffice branding
this (I hope) might clobber the application name as well, running a test build; I really need a Brazilian windows box to test/install to - my local windows XP machine doesn't take kindly to being told it is in Brazil (sadly).
I sent a URL to a test package to Olivier and Claudio
Thank you for the link to download and test. I removed previous RC2 and installed this one...
WRT firts attachment, a small glitch is left. See new attachment, and the red underline.
WRT the second attachement: fixed.

imagem with glitch indicated
Pushed the fix to libreoffice-3-3; the top-level menu item is indeed irritating, but is not in Shortcut.idt
It seems this last glitch comes from Director.idt which contains two problematic keys: 'OfficeMenuFolder' and 'INSTALLLOCATION' which need per-language-izing.
Unfortunately, the perl that builds them doesn't have a per-lang appreciation; so that needs adding - then (if we are lucky) msidb et. al. will unwind everything for us - though I'm not -that- optimistic.

Test patch attached; Thorsten reports that this renders the start menu as "LibreOfficedefoo 3.3" in his start menu, and it renders as "LibreOfficeen-USfoo 3.3" in mine.
Hopefully something similar holds the key to cleaner BrOffice specific MSI branding for 3.3.1+
I'll re-work it now to do something sane product-name wise instead :-)
So - I pushed a fix to master:
review much appreciated. FWIW, I left the install-directory as LibreOffice 3 - that should be much less visible to end-users, and I don't believe it is a great idea to fiddle with this at this stage :-)
Review / sign-offs much appreciated.
Test package for windows here: http://126.96.36.199/~libreoffice/
This is only to test the start-menu issue for pt-BR; though it may fix (or break) other pieces.
Downloaded and tested (Win XP under VirtuaBox).
Thank you indeed.
Patch in comment #16 looks fine to me.
I set my locale in the Regional settings to Portuguese (Brazil), and tried running the installer in comment #17, but didn't see any BrOffice branding, but is that visible only when the Windows localisation is Portuguese (Brazil) ?
Tor - yes; unfortunately I can't seem to persuade my windows (XP) that it is -really- brazilian portugese by fiddling the settings that they tell you to - I have to use LANG=pt_BR + wine - which does not help with the start menu.
/me special cased de instead and asked Thorsten to test on a German box. Anyhow - I'm glad it also worked for you in English (it did for me).
Anyhow - glad to get this one finally fixed. One more review from Fridrich, and I'll merge it. Thanks !
My son, you have my blessing for this patch
great; third approval, and I've committed it to libreoffice-3-3-0 and libreoffice-3-3.
Thanks guys !.
I may have missed something, but the fix here was not included in LO 3.3. RC3.
At best we need a RC4.
See also the thread http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2011-January/005831.html , where http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2011-January/005850.html includes a patch that should fix a problem that prevented the MSI phase of the multi-lingual installer from showing correct localisation.

Sure it missed the deadline RC3; but the bug is fixed, it will be in the next build.
