From  Apache OpenOffice 4.x ยป crashrep / source / all.po
String #6 has an hyperlink to
This page is in english

Do we need to translate it?
If yes, the link should be localized and be able to jump to native language page

I would suggest to use a generic link to so that we don't depend on hard-coded URLs.

The English version will always be available from the English site footer, the (say) French version could be in the French site , or linked from , or not ready yet... but this way we can keep flexibility for the future.

fixed, see issue 122192
Comment 3 Andrea Pescetti 2013-05-21 07:58:54 UTC
If the fix is revision 1484668 then this is actually not fixed.

This issue is: if we use as the "privacy" link (which is what revision 1484668 does), then that page is currently in English only and we must decide if/how to provide translated versions.

One option is to simply use as the "privacy" link and let the user find the privacy information in his language, if available, without enforcing any logic in the URLs we embed in OpenOffice. After all, the "Privacy" link is clearly visible in the site footer for English readers.
