User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Epiphany/2.22 Firefox/3.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20100201 Shredder/3.2a1pre

Keywords that triggers the "attachment reminder" should depend on the current composing language, so if you use Thunderbird in Italian and you are composing in English (or vice-versa), the attachment reminder bar should appear when you type "attach" and not only "attegato"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install TB in English
2. Install Italian dictionary (or any other language)
3. Start composing an email
4. Change spell check language to Italian
5. Type "allegato"
Actual Results:  
The attachment reminder bar doesn't show up

Expected Results:  
The attachment reminder bar shows up because "allegato" is a keywork valid for locale "it"
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true

Yeah, but how can Thunderbird know what the keywords are from all the localized versions?
Do you propose to ship all keywords with all TB localized versions?

Have all these prefs, like:
mail.compose.attachment_reminder_keyword.en-US
mail.compose.attachment_reminder_keyword.it
mail.compose.attachment_reminder_keyword.de
... etc?

I think there is no place we do anything like this yet. It surely is possible (even easy) to code, but how to collect all the translations and allow the localizers maintain them in the en-US TB base, not in their localized versions, that are in separate code tree?
