Why can LO Online not deal with locales which are not in the
browser-accept locales? It cannot possibly be in the realm of the
impossible to implement a locale selection feature.

I agree that LibreOffice should not just rely on the browser language.

Often a translation in a specific language can be of low quality (now I
speak of the general case and not just LibreOffice), and in that case I
would want to be able to choose the English version - i hate when I am
stuck with a bad translation in my native language. And I can easily
imagine that some translations of LibreOffice are not perfect due to lack
of resources. To me it's too simplistic just to use the browser language
with no option of overriding it. It would be fine to use the browser
language as a default, but it should be possible to change the LibreOffice
language without having to change the entire language of the browser. Just
as it is in the desktop version of LibreOffice - you don't have to change
the operating system language to change the LibreOffice GUI language.

The locale selection feature would of course also solve the problem of the
missing browser languages.
