Steps to repro:
Put your phone in Guarani or Esperanto, and either 
* Go to Firefox Settings, then Clear
private data. The screen has a button on the bottom
* Go to Firefox Settings, then Privacy and then Clear
private data. The next screen has a button on the bottom

With languages not supported by Android - such as Guarani or Esperanto - the "Cancel" button remains in English.

In the case that the language is supported by the OS - such as Romanian - it uses the native OS translation of that string, instead of our localized version. The issue in this specific case is that that string does not match the tone used throughout the app by the localizers - and we also end up getting 2 different words for "Cancel" in Firefox.

Can we make the "Cancel" button localizable? In both cases, the buttons on the right are localized and use our Mozilla localizations. thanks

IMO "Locale switching and selection" is for the Language switcher itself, not for generic issues related to localization like this one.
Thanks for the clarification, from all of the components available this seemed to be the right component for this kind of issues but based on Comment 1 changing the component back to General. If anyone else feels like this is not the correct component please feel free to change it to the proper one.
