ebook-viewer.exe opens in wrong language? * SOLVED *

hi there!

I am not native English speaker but have both my Windows, and Calibre set to English language.
That works fine.

But when I manually open the Calibre ebook-viewer.exe, it will open in my own language.
(I am guessing because it follows the localization settings for date/currency)

Can I change it so that the viewer will also open in English?

The viewer uses the same language settings as the rest of calibre. If you set calibre to langugae X running ebook0viewer.exe will also open in language X.

You can also force any calibre program ti sue engish by setting the environment variable

CALIBRE_OVERRIDE_LANG to the value en

Hello kovidgoyal.

Thank you for your fantastic software, great support, and very fast reply!
Still the languages were different in my case.
But because of course I cannot doubt what you are saying, I checked again, and I now see the error was on my part.
I had two folders for my portable installation, and I was not running the viewer from the same folder as I run Calibre itself.

Silly me. Sorry for wasting your time.
