tested on 2002-05-01-08-1.0.0 Windows XP Pro. JA 1. Launch Composer 2. Click Spell icon 3. Click and expand Language list You will have code name such as en-US, en-GB. In 6.X, they were language name such as English. This change gives very big impact to translation. Code name is not easy to understand for customer. Please take a look Bugscape #15096. Expected: back to be language name as 6.X has

Adding my comment from bugscape bug 15096 for the benefit of those without bugscape access: The InitLanguageMenu() function in mozilla/editor/ui/dialogs/EdSpellCheck.js is looking for these files to map the RFC 1766 strings to UI strings: chrome://global/locale/languageNames.properties chrome://global/locale/regionNames.properties If we fail to find any of these files, or any entries in these files that match the language or region, we default to using the RFC 1766 string in the UI. Have the URLs to these files changed? Are the languages/regions we're looking up, missing in these files? To my knowledge this code has not been touched since Sept 2001 when jbetak made the last changes! How does this bug relate to bugzilla bug 142597: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142597 which contains a patch to make things localizeable? Does it fix this problem? If so, can we get someone more familiar with ui localization, than me, to review the fix first? cmanske?
Summary: Spellchek/language name is code name instead of language name. → Spellcheck/language name is code name instead of language name.
this is a dup of bugscape bug ( all specllchecker bugs are in bugscape)#14134, please close this one and if you have a bugscape bug open dup it against 14134

Marina, the spellchecker UI code is in the mozilla tree so that other spellchecker backends can use the same UI. Spellchecker UI bugs should be filed in bugzilla. Only Netscape spellchecker backend bugs should be filed in bugscape.
Thanks! I thought front end and back end both go to bugscape...
