Unity's SystemLanguage doesn't separate between Traditional and Simplified Chinese.

Deployment Management


To Reproduce:

1.Change system language to Traditional or Simplified Chinese
(Just above Pу́сский in iOS language settings list (General>International))

2. Deploy the attached app.

3. Observe that application.SystemLanguage returns Chinese.

4. Switch to the other Chinese script.

5. It still returns Chinese.

application.SystemLanguage should either specify the exact language version or there should be some other property which has more details (maybe something similiar to CultureInfo.CurrentCulture (it's currently broken-677992).

    Getting this as well on iOS. Affects potential Apple featuring, so definitely a bug to be concerned about.

    I re-reported this (as this bug was closed) and received a response saying it is already fixed in 5.5, but they will see if the fix can be back ported to 5.3 and 5.4 in patch releases. Looks like they have re-opened this one anyway so you can vote on it again :)

    Yep. Not working on iOS 9 with 5.3.5f1. Please fix it! Only returns "Chinese". Not "ChineseSimplified" or "ChineseTraditional".

    Sorry, typo, I mean ChineseSimplified and ChineseTraditional are both labelled as "Chinese".

    Still a problem in 5.3.2f1. It does correctly label ChineseTraditional (Hong Kong) as "ChineseTraditional", but ChineseSimplified and ChineseTraditional are both labelled as "ChineseTraditional"
