Missing all the UI translations

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora 11 and enable russian language
gnumeric starts with russian language gui
if I try "LANG="ru_RU.UTF-8" gnumeric" nothing happens.
current locale is:
Same problem here.
All other programs in my Fedora system work in Finnish language but Gnumeric not, it's in English.
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...?
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...
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).
And a possible fix:
No news from the packager? Any way to help?
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.
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).
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
I'm running Fedora 12 now...
here is the f12 build, can you try that please?
Works fine, all menus are in Russian now. Thank you.
Works great for me in Spanish. Thanks!
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?
