We never made any decision on this issue. Most of the answers pointed to that GetUserDefaultUILanguage is the correct function to use. Or am I just misinterpreting to confirm what I said at the beginning ;-)

You are just misinterpreting to agree with what you yourself believe. Benjamin Riefenstahl had a similar setup as yourself, with a non-English locale on an English localized version of Windows, and he too would prefer the English tutorial, but I don't think we should limit ourselves to the languages that Windows has been translated to, and in some cases this is plainly the wrong language to use.

I am sorry, but I do not at all understand what you mean. What do you mean with that "I don't think we should limit ourselves to the languages that Windows has been translated to"? Have we discussed that at all? Is not this discussion about how to choose the correct language for text to be shown inside Emacs (in this case the tutorial of couse)?

BTW I just noticed that GIMP makes the same decision about language and it is quite disastrous. Everything is in Swedish. However if I need to search the Internet for information about GIMP then most tips are in English. I have however no way of knowning the English names of things within GIMP any more. Except of course by changing the keyboard to English, but then I had big trouble searching the Internet ;-)

It would be very good if we continued this discussion. It may not matter very much for those using an English keyboard layout, but it definitively does if you use for example a Swedish keyboard layout.
