  • hi,

    i have following code:

    @QString languageName =;@

    when i run it on windows, it returns my os language ("de").
    when i run it on mac OS lion, it returns "c". is this a bug?

    No, C is a valid locale. Basically it is "use no translation at all".

    Check the environment you are running your application in for the LC_* and LANG variables. Maybe something is forcing them to C. We do that in Qt Creator sometimes when we need to make sure to get parse-able output from the applications we run (e.g. the compiler).
