#9681 new Bug report

Interface is right-to-left while language is English

Reported by: Amir Eldor Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: interface, localization Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7


FileZilla just updated itself to the latest version ( and when it restarted I've found the interface is around (see screenshot). This did not happen on the previous version.

I guess it is because my Windows' location is set to Israel which has a right-to-left language setting, so it messed up the interface.

I have a global environment variable LC_ALL set to en-US for things like GIMP but it doesn't seem to be a solution for FileZilla.

I only have English as the language of choice installed in FileZilla.

What is the language you have configured in FileZilla? Is it English or "Use default system language"? or something else?

In my Settings >> Language It's "Default system language" and it's the only option. My Windows system's language is in English; the location is set to Israel.

Is there more information that is required?

I have the exact the same issue.
Please update if more information is needed.

Same problem and all of the same settings (as amireldor) here. Any progress?
Thank you.

I've managed to find a workaround that did the trick for me (not sure ALL steps are required, but this is what I did):

  1. downloaded and installed FileZilla portable - (Seems to work on "Normal" filezilla version as well)
  1. uninstalled filezilla's normal installation
  1. run FileZilla portable - everything looked the wrong as usual.

Go to filezilla's installation folder, and find the layout.xml file. for me it was: "C:\portable\FileZillaPortable\Data\settings\layout.xml"

Change every place that has:
Language id="xx_XX"
Language id="en_US"

  1. Then save, Run filezilla, and go to the "Edit > Settings" menu and under "Languages" set English (en_US) as the default language.
  1. Restart FileZilla, and hopefully it worked!
  1. If not, try to repeat from step 4.

I had to do it twice, haven't tested it for too long, but seems to work for the last few hours.
