Bug Description

[ Description ]

The list of encodings in Preferences → Compatibility is in English. The list in the Terminal → Set Character Encoding menu is properly translated, though.

Upstream bugreport: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=795358

Upstream trivial fix: https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-terminal/commit/?h=gnome-3-28&id=1828cb6d5

[ QA ]

If you're using English, install another locale and its translations and then-

LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8 /usr/lib/gnome-terminal/gnome-terminal-server --app-id=com.foo

in another terminal

/usr/bin/gnome-terminal.real --app-id=com.foo

Navigate to Edit -> Preferences -> <a profile> -> Compatibility and have a look at the Encoding combo (the third one down since this is not actually in English for you). Check that e.g. Hebrew says Hébreu.

[ Regression potential ]

Under the upstream MRE, you can believe this is fixed.

[ Original description ]

Could you please backport this tiny fix to Bionic LTS?

(We're planning to release gnome-terminal 3.28.2 containing this plus at least one other tiny fix in about a week.)

Since this bug has been linked from an SRU, we would need it to have the SRU template information filled in. Could that be done?
