Previously, on a Windows client machine, if a non-English locale was selected, the spice client (remote-viewer) displayed some translated UI elements in English, not the locale language. The current release fixes this and presents those translated UI elements in the locale language.

https://www.redhat.com/archives/virt-tools-list/2018-April/msg00038.html should fix this.

Comment 3 Uri Lublin 2019-02-25 14:13:52 UTC
I just tested remote-viewer (spice-client-msi-4.3-1 mingw-virt-viewer-7.0-2) running
on a Windows 7 Client with non English main locale.
Not everything has changed (e.g. menu is still in English) but many buttons are
translated to the locale language.
