Locale in bottles


a bit of a noob here, just wanted to make sure that changing the language option in bottles also changes the locale for the instance, or am I wrong here? I couldnt find any description in the documentation on this feature specifically

Hello madeleinestarlight.

I just did a quick test and I believe the answer to your question is ‘yes’.
I changed the language setting in Bottles and then opened Windows Explorer and Control panel (via the “Legacy Wine Tools” option), and they both came up in the chosen language.

Unfortunately, I can’t be 100% sure because I don’t have any other windows programs installed that use the system locale. But it seems to me that, if your program uses the system locale, you should be able to change that with the Bottles language setting.
