[Bug 1532537] Re: Impossible to choose language on help.ubuntu.com


Gunnar and I have been working on a solution to this issue, based on
Aders and Hans comments above and what gnome help does, and think we
have something very practical and useful. It is now available for
testing on help.ubuntu.com, in the development area, and only for the
desktop help docs, so far. So here:

Bug description:
  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.
