#8292 new Bug report

Many interface languages in FileZilla cannot be used.

Reported by: Aleksandar Kovac Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: OS X
Operating system version: Mountain Lion

Description

ISSUE:
In Preferences/Language: FileZilla offers a list of languages to choose from as a user interface language. Many of these languages cannot be activated. The error displayed by Filezilla states:

"Failed to change language
Failed to set language to [name on the language], using default system language"

The languages I could not set to work are:

-Arabic
-Armenian
-Farsi
-Galician
-Georgian
-Indonesian
-Kurdish
-Latvian
-Macedonian
-Nepali
-Norwegian (bokmal)
-Norwegian (nynorsk)
-Occitan
-Serbian
-Thai
-Valencian
-Vietnamese

SUGGESTION 1:
Remove non-functioning languages from the list. (In that case maybe those languages should be moved to a place where contributors can update them/fix them)

SUGGESTION 2:
If this error is an absolute necessity and cannot be avoided,
I suggest using a fuller sentence to provide clarity.

"Failed to change language
Failed to change language to [name of the language].
FileZilla will use this system's default language instead."

ADDITIONAL QUESTION:
What happens if the system's default language is one of those that are not working in FileZilla? Which language FileZilla will fall to?
