It looks like this is a cross compiled issue.

In cross compiled mode, Qt appears not to install the translation files unless explicitly enabled (at least on my system)

A qt.conf file is required for settings of where the translation files are (vs where they were installed to in the build stage)

The installer will need to create/setup this file based on the path that it is installed to.

Fix is forthcoming.

At runtime on the target system the Qt-translation directory where the translation files are expected is the absolute path


of the build system. This directory does not exist on the target system. On the build system, only the qscintilla translation files are copied into this dir, but not the qt translation files.

The MXE build does not contain the translation files qt_xx.qm with the qt internal text strings. The QScintilla translation files are present in ./translations but not found.
