Hi all When I compile a new version of Wireshark 2.0 from the github repo, the cancel and help buttons are displayed with the text below - as abort and help in German. My settings are Windows 7 x64, with regional settings set to New Zealand. Same thing seems to occur with region set to australia - but nothing I do to try and override this seems to work.

I've checked the translation files, and what I understand from the QT manual, it does suggest that the button text should be displayed, but for whatever reason it's just choosing the wrong string all the time. Any ideas? alt text

Are you compiling with Qt 5.5.1? If so it looks like you've run into QTBUG-48946 / Wireshark bug 11619. The problem should be fixed in 5.5.2. The official Windows installers are built with 5.3.2, but we will likely upgrade to 5.5.2 when it's released.

Thanks Gerald - no idea why my prior search didn't come up with the existing bug!
