Looking in octave 5.1.0 vs Octave 4.2.0, I see (in the mxe installation of 4.2) the transaction files for qt_de.pm, but not in octave 5.1.0, or 4.4.0 - which is when it changed to using Qt 5.0, so I am guessing that we are not installing the QT translation files

I'll take a look at what is missng

Sorry, but I do not have access any more to those Win10 PCs from my comment #0. That means that I am unable to answer Torsten's questions from comment #1. Those PCs were used in a big training site, I assume that their OS installation was mostly "vanilla Windows 10".

Maybe someone else can report if those Qt GUI buttons get properly translated under Win10?

Thank you for the report. The dialog you are referring to uses Qt standard buttons. This means that the text is not translated by octave (at least for the German version) but by Qt. There might be a problem with your installation but in this case I would expect more dialog boxes showing untranslated buttons.

What happens when you have a modified file and try to set a breakpoint in the GUI? Does the following dialog box have translated buttons?

Here are the steps to reproduce the behavior (under Windows):

  • Start the Octave GUI
  • Go to the GUI tab with the script editor
  • type some code into the script editor
  • close the editor tab of this m-file, without saving it beforehand
  • A GUI dialog window pops up and nicly asks you if you maybe want to save your work before closing the tab. The text of this question is nicley translated (to german in my case). So for so good.
  • But: The text on the 3 GUI buttons is NOT translated, it is still in english in my case :(

I have observed this with Octave 5.1.0 (exe installer from the project page) under Win10. If you do the same steps with Octave 5.1.0 (self compiled, official tar ball) under Linux, the those GUI buttons ARE properly translated.
