current locale is:
$ locale
Comment 2 Mikko Sorri 2009-07-20 04:35:23 EDT
Same problem here.

All other programs in my Fedora system work in Finnish language but Gnumeric not, it's in English.
Comment 3 RJ 2009-10-13 07:00:16 EDT
any fixes?
Comment 4 Mario Blättermann 2009-11-01 07:04:04 EST
I encountered the same for the German locale. Gnumeric contains only *.mo files for the functions, not for the GUI itself. And the functions are widely untranslated anyway (see http://l10n.gnome.org/module/gnumeric/)
I was searching in the gnumeric-devel package. Perhaps it could be that the missing files are there in by accidence, but no results.
To the package maintainer: F12 is to come in a few days, should it ship a broken Gnumeric package...?
Comment 5 Mario Blättermann 2009-11-01 07:26:07 EST
I've now installed Gnumeric from the sources. Same problem. There are only *.mo files for the functions. That's a bug in the (quite old) stable package 1.8.4. Don't think that anybody would fix this. The most distributions are already switched to current development versions 1.9.x. Now I will try to install this. Stay tuned...
Comment 6 Mario Blättermann 2009-11-01 08:37:23 EST
Just installed the current dev package 1.9.14 from sources. Works fine, including translation, and whithout any patches. I recommend to update the package to this version. It depends on libgsf >= 1.4.15, which is already provided from the Rawhide packages, and gnome-office >= 0.7.14, which have to be updated before (current is 0.6.6).
Comment 8 Benjamín Valero Espinosa 2009-12-09 14:38:54 EST
No news from the packager? Any way to help?
Comment 9 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2009-12-09 21:10:56 EST
Hi Benjamin,
I have already updated gnumeric 1.9 to rawhide now, but i guess you dont want to update?
I will look at this today, sorry for the delay.
Comment 10 Benjamín Valero Espinosa 2009-12-10 03:35:34 EST
Thank you very much! I have no problem with it but it was my wife who found the surprise, and her English is not very good (as mine).
Comment 11 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2009-12-14 01:26:10 EST
I did a scratch build and it seems to work for me, can you please test and let me know so that i can commit, Thanks

Comment 12 RJ 2009-12-14 02:51:21 EST
I'm running Fedora 12 now...
Comment 13 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2009-12-14 03:34:34 EST
here is the f12 build, can you try that please?

Comment 14 RJ 2009-12-14 03:59:18 EST
Works fine, all menus are in Russian now. Thank you.
Comment 15 Benjamín Valero Espinosa 2009-12-15 01:59:22 EST
Works great for me in Spanish. Thanks!
Comment 16 Joachim Katzer 2010-04-30 15:13:36 EDT
Works fine for me in German too.
But why was this version 1.8.4-7 not released to the F12 updates repos after more than 4 months?
