      Description

      Hi,

       

      the documentation at https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtranslator.html#load-1 lists ".qm" files that are loaded in the specified order.

      However, the order is different in the source code comment, see https://github.com/qt/qtbase/blob/5.15.2/src/corelib/kernel/qtranslator.cpp#L753-L763

      As far as I can see, the documentation on doc.qt.io is wrong.

      I ran into an issue where a fresh Windows 10 Education installation (German version) had the following `QLocale().uiLanguages() = ("de-DE", "en-US")`. I had following *.qm files:

      • App_de.qm
      • App_en_US.qm
      • App_en.qm
      • App_...qm

      The application was loaded in English. The following workarounds worked:

      1. Rename App_de.qm to App_de_DE.qm
      2. Remove App_en_US.qm

      IMHO, there is a mismatch between documentation and source code. I think that the source comment is correct but did no further investigation.

       

      Regards,

      Andre
