Description klosels 2004-04-22 21:29:58 UTC
While I don't find it necessary to localize NB as
a whole, there are some things which every now and
then raise issues which depend on the user's language.

The two prominent examples are keyboard shortcuts
(see Issue 39502 or Issue 41477)
and abbreviations (see Issue 16310)

It would be very useful to have some kind of
localized 'profiles' for things like these. That
way there could be an additional (german, danish,
...) profile which overrides shortcuts which don't
work on the corresponding keyboard layout or
abbreviations which conflict with common words of
that language.
These profiles could then easily provided with NB
installers or modified and shared by users.
I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to find
volunteers to manage those profiles for their own

Oops . obviously an enhancement suggestion, not a defect...
Comment 2 David Simonek 2008-10-17 12:55:50 UTC
Passing to options/keymap, please reassign further if component is wrong, thanks.
Comment 3 Jiri Skrivanek 2008-10-17 13:07:16 UTC
It should be possible to export/import profiles in new keymap panel. Then you can share profiles with community.
