SharePoint Hosted App - Language bug? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a site where the default language is en-US. The user preference language is Dutch(nl-BE). So everything on my site is translated to nl-BE.

    The problem is now when i open my app, the language is in English while the SPLanguage is nl-BE.

    Is this normal behavior?

    Thanks, Ludwig

  • Ludwig,

    The app is displayed in English because it takes the default language of the host web. I agree that this might not be what you want but I'm puzzled that you say that your SPLanguage is nl-BE? Are you talking about the SPLanguage token in the query string? I thought it would be en-US.

  • Yes I'm talking about the SPLanguage token in the querystring, this is nl-NL. 

    I added on the default page a listviewwebpart which displays a list where the fields are localized but it still displays english. Maybe the development team should check into this. I have added a picture where you can see the behavior.

    Thanks Ludwig
