To verify that the translations are indeed used, you may want to try this:

# strace -o output.txt red-carpet

<...exit the application once it started...>

# grep "locale" output.txt

The result you will get will be something like that (red-carpet 1.0)
open("/usr/share/locale/el_GR/LC_MESSAGES/", O_RDONLY) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/el/LC_MESSAGES/", O_RDONLY) = 6

As you can see, the application was not configured properly.
Instead of looking for a "", it looks for "".

Thus, you can temporarily copy your to
for your testing and file a bugzilla bug report.
