Impossible to choose language on help.ubuntu.com
Status in Online publishing of the Ubuntu documentation:
Status in Ubuntu Server Guide:
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
I am a Dutch user. However, for virtually any technical documentation,
English is the lingua franca on the web. It is an incredible nuisance
to look up technical details in Dutch. I appreciate the effort to make
help.ubuntu.com accessible in all languages, however it is a TERRIBLE
idea (and quite frankly, since the content is available in English,
but I can't access it, I classify it as a bug) to prevent people from
changing the language they read it in.
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
I expect to be able to read online help files in English.
Instead, I am forced to read them in Dutch.
