Steps how to reproduce Server Installation of "LibreOffice 188.8.131.52.beta2 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: f010139] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit):
1. Start LibO installed on German WIN7 PC
> shows German UI language and German localization
2. Menu 'Help -> Help/About' ('Hilfe -> Info über LOdev'
> "About" dialog appears in German Language
3. Click button 'Weibseite'
Expected: leads to existing German <Website http://de.libreoffice.org/>
Actual: leads to <http://www.libreoffice.org/>
@Rainer: Please note that not all languages have localized website. The link itself is localizable, it is up to the teams, if they localize it. Germans did it, see: https://translations.documentfoundation.org/de/libo_ui/translate.html?search=ygFO&sfields=notes
I don't know what's the criteria for this bug to be closed, I leave it to you. :)

I know (of course).

When all localized builds lead to available localized websites?
I believe this issue is really important (point of view marketing), but of course I will not check all those hundreds localizations. I will ask German localization team for help with contacts and leave a note on <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hi! The criteria would (for example be):
Attach a language after the url
For example: libreoffice.org?lang=de
At the website we have such sort of thing
if($_POST["lang"] == "de")
This above is Pseudocode, of course AND it would be better if we had a Pootle string for that option..
Still with b3
Hi all from localization teams,
can you please check whether the link has already been localized and if/when yes leave a note her in the Bug in Witeboard behind "done:"?
Not enough resource to localise en-GB site, nor really enough differences to make it worthwhile, unlike the UI & Help.
Added The ones where I currently did not check whether localized Website exists and/or whether localized link from Help works
UI: Help/About Website button link should lead to localized LibO Website:
Yes, it is what I am doing now.
I think pointing and user to Vietnamese website is reasonable
[AR],[BRX] checked with 184.108.40.206.beta3 WIN
[ES] undone for 220.127.116.11.beta3
[LT] Updated the string in Pootle with the localized URL. Should be done for the next version that uses updated strings.
Please also see "Bug 52000 - UI: Unify info links to localized LibO websites", a smart fix there might be able to fix this one, too without involving localization teams.
Please also see "Bug 52009 - LOCALHELP: URL for Documentation should be localized"
Any progress with this?
Joren - Please test this and see if you get a localized site. It works for sophie in French and me in English (I get sent to libreoffice.org/en), so I'm tempted to resolve as 'WORKSFORME'.
Assigning to sophie :-)
Dutch localization works fine. Tested using LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 rc with Dutch Localization. URL http://nl.libreoffice.org/ opens in browser
With german localization I get sent to http://de.libreoffice.org
Hi, So I've informed the l10n team about this issue, and pointed also the location of the 'http://www.libreoffice.org' string in their UI and help files asking the team to check for its adaption to native-language website if it exists.
I'm closing this issue. Cheers - Sophie
