Bug Description

On my Ubuntu 9.10 with KDE 4.3.2 I have installed additional languages (US English, Russian, Turkish, Czech and Hungarian). I use normally German language.
In the moment I get KDE menus in German and Russian language (mixed)!
E.g. in the menu "KPackageKit" and in the menu "Land/Region & Sprache - Systemeinstellungen".

Kind regards

The problem still exist.
The behavior still is more inprobable.
I get menus not only in German and Russian but also popups in Czech!
In addition I get menus in Hungarian (Verbindungen verwalten – DSL bearbeiten).
The languages are mixed completely.
I will try to reinstall all languages.

New installation of languages doesn't change the behavior.

I'm not sure this is a bug, but rather the fallback system for KDE translations, whereby if you install several languages translations not present in the main language will be subsequently shown in the other languages down the list if present.

As per the last comment, I think this is not a bug in translations, but a feature of KDE. You could try to uninstall the additional languages and see if the untranslated strings appear in English instead, which will confirm this. You can also try that on a virtual machine if you don't want to change your system.
