Hi Joan,

Thanks for this detailed report, it is very useful!

Actually they are... but not in Eliot :)
For these standard buttons, Eliot uses the QDialogButtonBox class,
which is supposed to respect the desktop guidelines concerning the
buttons layout. Qt uses its own translations (more on this below),
which are not present for Catalan. I could replace the Qt-provided
translation of these buttons with one specific to Eliot, but I'm not
sure it is worthwhile.

Note: I noticed that on Windows the Qt translations don't work at all
(even for French), because of a packaging bug. It is also fixed in

Fixed in git.

I suppose you meant 1.14.
Could you try the workarounds described in [1] please?

If both work, please do not try the final workaround (described in
[2]), because I would like to investigate the problem before the
symptoms are definitively gone...

This is the same reason as for the OK/Cancel buttons. These context
menus are, by default, completely handled by Qt (see [3]), including
their translation. It works perfectly for French, but from the files
in /usr/share/qt4/translations/ it seems that Qt is not translated in
I think the best approach here would be that someone (you?) translates
Qt in Catalan, so that all the Qt applications benefit from this work
(not only Eliot).

Fixed in git.

OK. I don't really see what I could do about this one :)
