Dialogs like Open, Save and Print doesn't seem to be fully localized:
- top English
- middle German
- bottom English

    Can you post a screenshot of the Open and Print dialogs?

    Ah, I see what you mean. I made an updated langpack installer that takes care of this problem. Can you see if it fixes it for you? (Note that the rest of your Mac OS X installation must be in German, too, for this to work.)

    Thanks for the feedback. You can watch further progress on this here (this problem potentially affects all languages we support):

    Well, I still see 2016 in the dialog but grep says 2018!?

    $ pwd
    $ grep vorbehalten * -r

    Try restarting your Mac. Mac OS X tends to cache things and doesn't notice these minute changes. I've seen this many times over the years when making and testing the installers.

    Indeed, this seems to be still cached somewhere, strange.
    Now it's fixed!
