Does anyone have Windows set to a different language than English?

The mod data stored by Dragon Age supports some limited localization, for example if you look at the AddIns.xml, especially for Bioware DLC, you will see entries similar to this:

<Title DefaultText="Band of Fire">
    <en-us><![CDATA[Band of Fire]]></en-us>
    <fr-fr><![CDATA[Anneau de feu]]></fr-fr>
    <it-it><![CDATA[Anello del fuoco]]></it-it>
    <es-es><![CDATA[Sortija de fuego]]></es-es>
    <pl-pl><![CDATA[Ognista Obrączka]]></pl-pl>
    <ru-ru><![CDATA[Кольцо огня]]></ru-ru>
    <pseudo><![CDATA[Band of Fire]]></pseudo>
    <cs-cz><![CDATA[Prstýnek ohně]]></cs-cz>

Those specific languages can be used in many properties (though not all), and the system then falls back to "DefaultText" if no locale specific definition exists.

I am currently putting in the very initial code to use the local specific information if it exists, based on your Window's language setting. If you have Windows set to some language other than English please post in this thread, and indicate what language you have it set to. Thanks.

    You need 1.9.2 for localization.
