Did you edit or recompile the translation without restarting the web server?

What webserver are you using, and if apache 2, which MPM?

We just observed that even though a user may have set preferred 
laanguage "greek", the mailbox view is displayed sometimes in English 
(with dates in the US format mm/dd/yyyy) and sometimes in Greek (with 
dates in the EU format dd/mm/yyyy). So it is probably not a gettext 
problem, but a result of the preferred LANG environment variables 
being lost in some cases. Successive reloads of the page offer 
sometimes a greek and sometimes an english interface.

Could this be a problem with Horde not setting the LANG variables correclty?

As an update, I have run extensive command line invocations of gettext 
for all the definitions in the horde greek po file. The results show 
that gettext responds consistently and correctly. No erratic behaviour 
is observed. So my guess is that within the Horde environment, the 
preferred lang parameter is not alwasy passed correctly to gettext.

Any ideas on how to confirm this?

We have a system installed on Gentoo Linux with:

Horde 3.1.2

IMP 4.1

gettext 0.14.5

Having selected a non-english language for "preferred language" in 
Global Settings, successive reloads of any web page under Horde (IMP, 
Portal, e.a) sometimes display translated interfaaces and sometimes 
untranslated. E.g after login, the portal page may display all text in 
Greek, but after 2-3 reloads on the same page, some parts revert to 
being rendered in English. A few more reloads may restore 
translations. No other action is taken between the browser page 
reloads (no change of  "preferred language", no editing/making of po 
files, no apache restart).

Any idea what may be causing this?

Is it some unstable gettext behavior?

Could it be a Horde problem with propagating the "preferred language" setting?
