Description (last modified by diver)

Localization has come a long way since alpha 2. However, there are still a few things missing. I've collected open tickets concerning localization (bugs and enhancements). Feel free to add missing tickets - or to close this tracking ticket if you think it's not needed.

#6515 language mix due to country settings

#4891 can't input accented characters using dead keys
#5441 Allocate more positions for dead keys
