Translation issue with Qt strings

There’s a translation issue with the internal Qt strings. We’ve noticed it in the standalone OpenRPT, but the problem might exist also in the xTuple ERP client: the Qt strings are not translated (for instance in the font selection dialog).
To have them translated, i think you have to include the following code in the application init:

QTranslator qtTranslator; qtTranslator.load("qt_" + QLocale::system().name()); app.installTranslator(&qtTranslator);

…and to ship all the qt_*.qm you need with your application.

Am i correct ?

PS i’ve tried to test the xTuple ERP client for this but i don’t kow how to activate translations…

I’ll go ahead and add the Qt strings loading code to the standalone Report Writer, it will allow full translation if the qt_*.qm are shipped with the Writer, and won’t do any harm if they are not.
Still don’t know about the xTuple ERP client, though.
