Maybe in the short term but in the long term, a LO internal solution
will be needed ANYWAY. Why? Because if LO is really going to make the
leap to tablets/mobile devices, it will either mean enabling such a
feature or it will mean consciously leaving behind any locale which is
not available as an interface language of the OS in question, for
example Android, which use force-locale. Which is quite a lot of
languages due to the *cough* supportive nature of Android.


The problem is not a LibreOffice issue but an Ubuntu issue in the way
Ubuntu packages its own LO version and, perhaps, manages the
localization of others softwares provided by the distribution.

Indeed the vanilla version of LibreOffice is not affected by this
defect. I just tried to install the en_us help package for my
LibreOffice 3.6.4 FR version on my Ubuntu 12.04 (x86-64 FR). Now I can
switch between UI+Help in French and UI+Help in English. If I choose the
French UI then the Help is in French, and if I choose the English UI
then the Help is in English.

In my own build of LibreOffice too, I do not reproduce this
problem, I have UI+Help in French and in English (en_us) as expected.

So, if the problem is on the Ubuntu side, the solution is on Ubuntu side
