Language switch and folder names

Postby Art1 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 9:01 am

In Mint 14 MATE live DVD, when I update all packages, install and change language for the whole system, log out and log in, then the whole system is translated, except folder names in the home folder. They don't change their names into a changed language. For example "Desktop", "Downloads", "Pictures" etc. keep their original names.

I think mint (probably Ubuntu as well) had a default install language of English, no matter what the locale (national language) added was
--also all menus may not have been translated for that release, or specific applications don't have translated menus functioning.. (thunar, nautilus and so on.)

Yes, I understand, but in Mint 11 Gnome which I used before, there is no problem like that, so it is strange.
