    Default QFile error string is returned in wrong language

    Hello,

    I have an issue with the language used in a string returned from QFile errorString().
    The error is returned in the language defined from system (Windows), but I need to display this message in my application always in english.
    Setting default QLocale doesn't seem to have any effect:

    Qt Code:
    1. // Set language to a different language as defined in QLocale::system()
    2. QLocale::setDefault(QLocale("en_US"));
    3. QFile file("");
    4. file.open(QFile::ReadOnly);
    5. // Error string still in system language
    6. const QString errorString = file.errorString();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Is there a way to change language used from QFile errorString() or a way to use an existing parser to parse QFile::FileError to a specified language?

    You can use http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qfiledevice.html#error . errorString() is getting it's string from Windows and therefore the Windows locale is used

    Yes I know how to get the error code from QFile but I found no parser to parse this error code into a readable string. I don't want to write a parser, when a parser seems to exist somewhere.

    Is there a way to use the parser who is used internaly from QFile class with a specified language?
