Actually, they still do, but quite badly. The current preflet only allows you to select a precise locale like fr_FR or pt_BR. This makes it not able to fallback to generic fr or pt even if they are available. You can check that it still work in some places; for example AboutSystem will display the uptime localized properly.

I'd like someone else to take over the preflet work : I'm definitely more at ease working with the internals of the Locale Kit than building windows...

I'm not willing to work more on the locale preflet. Sorry, but GUI coding definitely isn't my cup of tea.

This problem is not GUI and Owned by the fact that the locale does not set locale, and the translated programs not able to use this locale. And this Locale from Locale.zip also not work, for the same reason, I think. This just Locale brokenness an not as you think.

The fact that even when changing the locale to a language other than English localized applications still run in English make it difficult to work on localization.

Would it be possible to revert to the last working revision until whatever issues cause this problem have been addresses?

Yes. Alternatively you can just rename your catalog to use the proper name (like fr_FR instead of fr) and it will work.

Ok, fixed the catalog loading so the current preflet will work in hrev35787.
