Gmail = Functions missing!!





n0obie4life
Go to settings, set your language to "English (US)". Then, go to contacts, you'll see "Groups". You can create distribution lists and etc.

Then just create one or whatever. Then set your language to 'English (UK)'. Then go back there, your groups button is gone.

But when you set your language back to English (US), your groups button is back!!

Then where do I report it?

Weird, might be a bug, or they not relased groups in the UK.
Or could be a legal issue like what happened with the gmail branding in the UK changing to google mail.
n0obie4life
I just figured out how to report a bug, so I reported it to them. Hopefully it's a bug and not because of some issues or bias Smile

have you guys noticed that gmail had some problems earlyer today and yesturday. I kept getting the message ''Gmail is having problems, cross your fingers and refresh in 30 seconds''.

Yeah its a cool error message, but i do need to check my emails Razz

I don't think it is a bug, I think that only happens because gmail wasn't fully translated to UK english even though it is almost the same as US English.

If you want to report it just send me an email at druefex@gmail.com
I have a friend that works at google and i can forward it to him.
I live about 25min from their headquarter also. Maybe i'll just go there and slap them a couple of times myself. =D

Hello,
I meant - http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/5629/fdas2oc.png (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to send attached files to you guys, so, here's an image on imageshack). The circled "Groups" link. If I had set my language to "English (UK)", the groups button would be missing. But if I set it to "English (US)", the groups button would be there.
I suppose that's a bug and causing a useful feature within Gmail to be lost. Or is the groups feature not available to people using "English (UK)" ?
Regards.

Hello,
Thank you for your response.
Please note that some of the features available in the 'English (US)'
setting may not be available when you select another language setting.
We're working hard to make all of Gmail's features available in every
language setting, so thanks for your patience.
To select a different language view, please follow these steps:
1. Log in to your Gmail account.
2. Click 'Settings' at the top of any Gmail page.
3. Select a language from the 'Gmail display language:' drop-down menu in
the 'Language:' section.
4. Click 'Save Changes.' (A dialogue box will then appear, offering the
option to change the language for all Google sites you visit. Select
'Yes,' or 'No,' depending on your preference.)
Your account interface will appear in the language of your choice after
you click 'Save Changes.' Remember, your account's display language
doesn't affect the language in which your messages are sent and received.
Sincerely,
The Gmail Team


Very Happy

Is there really much difference between US and UK English? Sure, maybe color is spelled colour, but I've read a UK book and didn't notice any differences. And anyway, you should learn to be able to read US English, too...

google being predominantly US based, everything they do, most of their new inventions etc cater to the american market and hence US English....once they make sure everythings alright they bother with the multilingual support...

and yeah, US english and UK english are 98% similar... just a few spelling changes here and there and maybe a different grammar rule or two

Yeah, we use 'Australian English' here in Australia, which is basically the same as UK English.

Quote:

Lots of things that the Americans spell with 'or' at the end are spelt with 'our' in English UK. For example, colour/color, humour/humor. I've never understood why they do that (Do the Americans want to save space by leaving out a letter? Razz). Also, words like 'centre' are spelt as 'center' in American.

Quote:

It's not multilingual! It's still English (proper English at that).

Speaking of missing features, I recently had to set my MSN Passport account to United States to allow me to use the 'Shared Folders' feature in MSN Messenger 8 Beta... So now, my profile says I'm from "Melbourne, Australia, United States" Razz Razz)

The Groups portion probably hasn't been translated yet.

When I change the language into Tagalog, you pretty much get a mess because the translations are SSSOOOOOO long... I want to translate it, but it seems that it doesn't change when I suggest it in Google In Your Language. [sob]

They obviously just don't like you.

gonzo, it's coined as "US English" and "UK English" and not American Rolling Eyes.

Gmail still has a bit of a beta feel to it. It goes down a lot recently, has anyone else noticed that? Still way better than most webmail though.

Say what?

lol. That's strange. Well, too bad..
JackOLantern
Well....

I'm Italian and don't mind for US-English or UK-English....

I use UK-english as with that setting all dates are correctly displayed in the usual and more logical format.... DD-MM-YYYY instead of the american way

I don't mind for Trash or Deleted items....
But I think is weird to have less functions because they need to translate them from english to english
