Thanks for your report. This is because Qt tried to figure out the language it should use from your os, instead of Krita's override. I'm not sure yet how to fix it, though I'm trying some things.

Work extra double plus hard to let Qt load the overridden translations.

If there are translations missing in the current releases it probably is because the translations themselves are incomplete.

Hello, I have the same issue ever since this bug report. I don't quite understand how was this resolved but the issue persists with other languages such as Dutch and Bulgarian. 

I'm using Krita 4.3.0-beta1 at the moment and the issue is still present.
