Re: [Gimp-developer] OSX


It is indeed possible to change the language within Gimp without
changing the system language.

If you are packaging the iso-codes, you should be able to see and set
the default Gimp language without changing system language.

Why using the language selector in GIMP? As far as I can see, there
is no need for the language selector, at least my builds work without
it very well.

It used to be like this on Windows for a looong time, and turned out
that many people want to use GIMP in a language different from their
system's - it is quite common for users to stick with the original
English, because about every tutorial you can find is written in this

This doesn't seem to be possible with your builds at the moment, unless
the users change their system preferences?

Indeed. It isn’t possible within GIMP but in System Preferences. As with all other native OS X 
applications. At least I don’t know about a native application having its own language selector.
