Hi,

If I got correctly the post laika should retrieve the MacOS settings to choose the display language and the clock format.
Unfortunately it does not seem to work for me.

My mac mini is in French with a clock format in 24h and when I start the client I have an English interface with the clok in format 1 PM/AM.

Did I miss something or the localization is not working as expeted?

If you need further information just let me know.
I have Snow Leopard with a Mac Mini 2010 and using PMS 9.5 with laika from a fresh new install.

Thanks,
Flo

The devs didn't have time to add the Plex-way of showing the clock before this preview release. It will be added in a future release.
In the mean time; There is a manual way of forcing Laika to show a 24 hour clock, it is done in the guisettings.xml which you can find in ~/Library/Application Support/Plex/userdata/

<locale>
        <charset>DEFAULT</charset>
        <country>UK (24h)</country>
        <language>english</language>
    </locale>

You can play around and find what works best for your country.

Guys,

Give it some time, it will definitely be localized within a short amount of time.

I assume the same deal here applies as with the clock. The old Plex clients tied in with OSX to get the clock, and it also looked at what OSX language you were using. This preview release of Laika do not contain that connection to OSX.

I did some research on the matter and I found a way to solve it for now. Go into guisettings.xml which is in ~/Library/Application Support/Plex/userdata/
and search for the word: locale
There you change it. It tried to change that block to:
<locale>
        <charset>DEFAULT</charset>
        <country>Central Europe</country>
        <language>Swedish</language>
    </locale>

And when I saved it and restarted Laika I got a swedish interface.

That works so far as we get the same translations as we had before - Thanks.

However I don't expect Plex to be fully translated soon - I wait for that since years... As many others I even offered help to translate but nothing changed.
I don't even expect to have any setting translated but at least those parts which we see daily should be translated.

But the priority seems to be as low as it can be...

Yeah, but some things are changing. I believe they have found the tool to use for it (which we tested when we did all the translations for the iOS app for example). The things missing is that the devs needs to tag up the entire codebase I believe, to support this new tool. So with a bit of luck we can see some translations in the end =)
