Description Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-12-10 05:41:21 UTC

The localization seems to be broken in the master and LO 4.0 beta1+
Symptom: in French UI the main menu and its submenus are still in English. Others dialogs are in French, for example Options, character or paragraph formatting, etc.

No such problem on beta1.

Test done on my own build of the master (Build ID: 782c243045a1c7ee95b2d7ea6bca64812a9049e) and before on LO (last commit: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?h=libreoffice-4-0&id=9fc3adb2f0163bc9f00e764792049fd6df049255)
OS: Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 with gnome-shell

My autogen.lastrun:
--with-lang=en-US fr

Best regards. JBF

Hi Andras

Do you confirm and have an idea of what went wrong?

Comment 2 Andras Timar 2012-12-10 16:19:03 UTC
Somehow share/registry/res/registry_fr.xcd is too small, translations are missing. I need to find out, why.
Comment 3 Andras Timar 2012-12-10 16:51:53 UTC
Warning : /home/timar/libreoffice-master/translations/source/fr/officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/UI.po has invalid header
This is the root cause of the bug. We need to make our tools more fault tolerant. Fixing the French po files is another option, but it would be better to fix the tools.
Comment 4 Andras Timar 2012-12-10 17:25:28 UTC
I fixed the invalid headers.
Comment 5 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-12-10 20:39:13 UTC
Works as expected in master (Build ID: c74fe188b178fab821084bb82d4574f77dc2e1c)
Thank you very much, Andras. :-)

Best regards. JBF

Ah, this was not needed. In the meantime, it has been fixed a better way, see
