[Bug 1000049] Re: Help pages all in Chinese with no Accept-Language


Right, Doug, without those tests it would have been difficult to figure
out a working configuration. Thanks!

For the record it's worth mentioning that the crawlers of the search
engines don't send Accept-Language headers. Hence the most serious
consequence of this bug has been that titles and descriptions in search
results at Google and friends have been displayed in random languages;
in Google that language has usually been Chinese.


This is the reason why I set the importance of this bug to high.

  Help pages all in Chinese with no Accept-Language

Status in “ubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  If you go to any help page on help.ubuntu.com, for example:


  And you happen to be using a browser which does not send an Accept-
  Language header, the page will be shown in Chinese. No option or link
  is visible allowing the page to be shown in another language.
  Confirmed using source IP addresses from 3 countries, none of them
  China, so it doesn't seem to be geolocated.
