Torbirdy uses Arabic as a default locale
I stumbled upon this bug while experimenting with Icedove in Tails. There is a 9 month old bug filed upstream at https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/13721.
More details can be found on the upstream ticket but to briefly summarize the problem: in a locale which is not supported/included by Torbirdy, Torbirdy’s UI will be displayed in Arabic. This is the case even when the corresponding language pack for Icedove is installed. Of the locales that Tails supports, I was able to reproduce this bug in FA, VN, and ZH.
The Torbirdy supported locales include:
ar, ca, cs, da, de, el, en, en-GB, es, eu, fr, he, hu, id, it, ko, lv, nb, nl, pa, pl, pt, pt-BR, ro, ru, sk, sl, sr, sv, tr, uk
It’s probably safe to say that Arabic will be the default for any locale which is not included with Torbirdy.
