We can split Localization/Guide apart? Or in some places i will have to write another translation as The Euro symbol for the console -> Cyrillic symbols for the console. If this localization guide please give opportunity to write for the nuances of languages other than German. -- Cronolio 23:26, 28 Dec 2015 (UTC)

I just split out the whole Euro symbol stuff into a separate sub page. --Charles17 (talk) 11:08, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Should be mentioned in this guide about installing an unicode font, right? --Best, Pál (talk) 11:00, 11 March 2016 (UTC) Also, should be mentioned that that one must to set USE flag 'unicode' in make.conf, right? --Best, Pál (talk) 11:08, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Wrong place here. Unicode character set is mother of UTF-8 character encoding and is described there.
Regarding the USE flag, that's only useful if eix -c --installed-without-use unicode does not return nothing. --Charles17 (talk) 13:38, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

locale commands of sys-libs/glibc

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Shouldn't be mentioned here that commands used in this article like

/usr/sbin/locale-gen
/usr/bin/localedef
/usr/bin/locale

are specific to sys-libs/glibc? Or do the alternative "system libraries" (sys-libs/musl, sys-libs/uclibc, ...) provide the same commands? Also the term system library as used in the article is not very clear. Is system library identical with C library?
