Summary0037937: Translations use the wrong files
DescriptionSee bug 0037936. Lazarus is affected similarly because, even on Windows, it reads the LANG environment variable first before falling back to GetLanguageIDs. Perhaps that check should just be under {$IFDEF windows}...{$ENDIF}, as it's not expected that Windows users set e.g. LANG=en_US.UTF-8 (but they might want to set it to C).

Furthermore, I'm not sure if Lazarus supports a fallback language, but it definitely doesn't support a language preference list, as suggested in 0037936.
