Hi!

I've set the language options and downloaded the language support in Xubuntu Precise, but it still doesn't translate the dropdown menu and many other things into my local language. Is this a Xubuntu or Xfce issue?

Thank you!

In xubuntu this can be found in settings->language support. The GUI looks identical to the one shown in the link.

Keep in mind that translations for your language may be incomplete (I don't know which one you're using). Some programs may use their own system for translations.
