Description Michael Bauer 2015-04-29 09:44:56 UTC
The number and selection of locales available on Android vary from country to country, manufacturer to manufacturer and even handset to handset. Most locales are (though theoretically part of Android) not on offer. Especially small-to-medium locales are often affected by this.

Because LO has localized products in many small to medium locales (like Irish (ga) or Scottish Gaelic (gd)) force-locale to set the UI language of the Viewer should be complemented by a feature where the end-user can manually set a different locale for the Viewer UI language.

Increasingly, especially open software offers such features for exactly these reasons, e.g. Firefox Mobile, VLC, WordPress.

enhancement, setting to new
Comment 2 Christian Lohmaier 2015-05-26 12:31:03 UTC
(currently the Viewer doesn't ship with any translations)
Comment 3 Michael Bauer 2015-05-26 13:06:51 UTC
I didn't think it did but after the problem with getting locale selection into the Remote or indeed VLC or Mozilla Mobile, I wanted to file a bug as soon as possible to put this issue on the radar.
