SOFTWARE VERSION: 3.2010.02-8
(Settings > General > About product)
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Install Traditional Chinese locale file from App. Manager, actual location
2. go to "setup" "locale", switch the locale to Chinese (Taiwan Region)
3. Reboot then the UI will turn to Trad. Chinese.
4. Go to app. manager to uninstall the Chinese locale file.
5. Immediately after the removal, whole UI menu become funcation call name and
become extremely hard to reconize.
6. You can solve this problem by trying to reset the locale to English then
reboot the device.
If can't find the MO file, the system should by default display English.
The system will display function code name and is difficult to read.

this is not really a bug. Let me try to explain:
All user visible and translatable strings by default are cryptic technical IDs
and receive a translation to a human language. Once you set a language the
translated strings for this language will be used. Hence if you remove the
files/package that includes the translated strings for the language that you
currently use, the system will use the untranslated strings.
Actually this problem would be fixed by fixing bug 7256, hence marking as a
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 7256 ***
Hi, Thanks for the reply.
Considering the behavior, it would be nicer if can't find the specific
language, a "default" one will be used instead of untranslated stream. That
will be focusing on overall user experience.
I can agree with you this may not consider to be a bug, but it is still indeed
an annoying "design fraud" to me.
Thanks a lot for your explaination.
