Description of problem:
gedit 2.0.0 in tr_TR.utf8 locale
can not be used because menu labels as well as preferences box labels shows
strange charecters instead of usable text
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.nothing just open gedit 2.0.2
Actual Results: The app is unusable.
Expected Results: Menus should use some understandable text
I ve downloaded and compiled i386.src rpm of gedit 2.0.2
but this strange bug still exists.
But if started with
env LANG=en_US gedit %U or
env LANG=en_US.utf8 gedit %U
the labels are ok.

Showing the strange labels
The problem is perhaps a lack of Turkish fonts.
Is this problem specific to gedit or does it happen with all text
on the system? If some applications display Turkish correctly,
which applications are they?
From the screen shots it also looks possible that the turkish translations
are simply in the wrong encoding.
well i have just found out that the po file that's on gnome2.0 gtp site is in
TAMIL languge instead of Turkish. also this file is included with gedit2.0.2-5
I ve just posted a bug report to gtp also.

the tr.po file which reside on gtp website and gedit2.0.2 src it is not Turkish it's Tamil
I'm assuming this should be fixed in our newer gedit packages in rawhide.
If not, get the fix into GNOME upstream translation project, and
we'll get the newer gedit packages with the fix.
