Fw: Re: Problem running hello-objc-gnustep example in gettext

Hi

I need to change the default language for NSGlobalDomain from my main.m.

 I am doing the following(as in attached) from my main.m.
 
 However the NSLanguages value for the application domain is changed and not the value for NSLanguages in NSGlobalDomain. Hence the application strings appear still in English.

 Could anyone please have a look and let me know how I could modify the NSLanguages value for the NSGlobalDomain from the main.m.

 Thank you very much,
 Asha

you should probably send the mail again with the address@hidden mailing list in Cc: ... I expect
quite a few people on the mailing list should be able to look at the code and respond ;-)

That way you may get a faster response ... I'm too busy with things at work today to look at the code.  I may
manage tomorrow.  But if you send to the list, chances are someone else may have time *right now* :-)

Thanks
