Description sergiocallegari 2006-03-15 17:32:55 UTC
If you have the US-English build of Openoffice, the following happens:

1) The build includes many localized letter templates (e.g. including Italian)
for the letter-wizard in the openoffice.org2.0/share/template/wizard/letter/it/
2) In spite of that when you invoke the letter wizard, the latter ignores the
locale setting and always uses the en_US templates.

This is a problem if you want to write an Italian letter on an US-English build:
it is actually a major problem, since not only the letter produced by the wizard
must be translated in some of its elements, but (and this is more serious) it
gets the wrong paper format (letter rather than A4). Note that correcting the
paper size is more critical than doing some translation, because when you switch
paper size, the format has a tendency to misplace a few items.


A) Why are the letter templates repeated both in
openoffice.org2.0/share/template/wizard/letter/<country code> and in
openoffice.org2.0/share/template/<country code>/wizard/letter
while the non-letter wizard templates only exist in
openoffice.org2.0/share/template/<country code>/wizard/<wizard name> ?

B) Why there is no way to add the non-letter Italian (or any other country)
wizards to the EN_US build in a similar way to that in which dictionaries can be

wizard seems to use "User interface" language eventhough localized templates 
already installed in "share/template/wizard/letter/<country code>". To get 
additional UI languages you need to install language packs.

So I am confirming the behavior.
