As asked, a bug was file to the Mageia distribution:


Description of problem:

When copying a file in mc (midnight commander) the localization in Portuguese is incorrect and difficults viewing the names of the files.

A (bad) workaround is using a small character size and a very wide terminal window.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install mc with pt-BR locale.

  1. Try to copy a file with F5 (copy).
  2. Observe wrong string on screen.

Example screen in English, for reference:


Screenshot of problem (in Portuguese):


BTW, using the infinitive form, "Preserve attributes" translates as "Preservar atributos".

Just a note: my locale is Brazil Portuguese (pt-BR) not just Portuguese (pt).

Thanks for your attention. Please advise me if you need more info.
