how do i fetch news with "en" tagged as language - kindle3

i have a problem with fetching english news.
if the news are fetched and send to the kindle the language tag not been set to english. so if i try to make a dictionary lookup there are no results. the kindle search in the german dict. in my normally fetched news (german) it seems to be o.k.
to change the primary dictionary takes no effekt.

when i made a lookup within an original english book the function is normal and shows the translation right.

is there a plugin/tweak needed or something to set the right language code in the mobi-files?

change calibre to english is not successfully to solve the problem, also the entry "language = en" in the recipe give me no success.
running last calibre version .8

hope someone give me a hint for fully automatic newsfetching in the right language.


it seem's not possible to change the language code within a recipe, so i have no chance to
use the rss-news as provided with the dictionaries.

short work-around (for me):
i will set up another platform in vm-ware on the main server to fetch english news (with correct language set in mobi-files) inside a running calibre with english main-language.


in future it should be possible to change this value from inside a recipe i mean.
It's not great to always have to change language.

perhaps a case of the bug-tracker, what do you think ?
