In Maltese Language in Windows 7, calendar days are not displayed correctly

    Question

  • I've recently purchased a copy of Ms Windows 7 and set the default language to Maltese. I noticed that in Windows calendar, the days of the week, which in English are displayed as S M T W T F S, are displayed as I I I L I I I. The reason behind this is that the Maltese days are preceded with articles that normally start with the letter "i", except for Wednesday. The solution is simply to drop the article so that we see the letters H T T E H G S. Below, I provide some more detail on the difference between the days with and without the article.

    Sunday  ----> Il-Hadd   ---->     Hadd
    Monday  ----> It-Tnejn ---->     Tnejn
    Tuesday  ----> It-Tlieta  ---->    Tlieta
    Wednesday  ----> L-Erba  ----->     Erba 
    Thursday  ----> Il-Hamis  ---->  Hamis
    Friday  ----> Il-Gimgha  ---->  Gimgha
    Saturday  ----> Is-Sibt ----> Sibt 

    Is it possible to fix this? If yes, who should we contact?

    But you had only mentioned Windows 7 in your post.

    The languages will not be changed in Windows Developer Preview.
    However, I suggest you send your feedback to the the following link:

    You can submit feedback using the Windows Feedback Tool from the Connect Site associated with your Windows Developer Preview program.

  • Well, this problem is not limited to Windows 7. Is the problem tackled in Windows 8 or in the product this blog is about? Who should we contact regarding general language related issues?
