Description

Settings and GUI doesn't look the same in layout/composer when using "system locale" (Swedish) and "override system locale" (Swedish).

Using the default "system locale" on a Swedish system will render Swedish translations of the GUI, but it is not the same GUI as if using "override system locale", even if selecting Swedish.

Two screen caps attached. One default locale and one override system locale, both in Swedish.

Did you notice that there are currently two different tools to create layout/composer (the new and the old) and that you may not be using the same one in the two QGIS instance?

I did not notice it was two tools to produce layouts. Same names, same short cut, translation to same name in Swedish.

So you were not hitting the same one in the two locales, right?
The two tools being proposed are a temporary "feature", the time the new layout is finished. See https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2017-December/051013.html
Maybe we can close this ticket if you agree.

Not by testing computer but, I remember two buttons for layout (same name and shortcut in swedish) that opens the two layout tools separately. As I recall there's only one menu option and it opens different layout tools depending on locale. It's probably a translation thing, and as I now know there's two layout tools, the ticket can be closed. I'll keep an eye on it and see if it works ok in a week or two...
