What would you like to add?

You have to choose one of the date formats offered by MythTV (I do 
believe though that it wouldn't be a problem to add another one if it 
was needed).

The date formats decide the order and how things such as month names are 
displayed (short format, long, numeric) but the translation of the text 
is handled, I believe, at the OS level...

(Qt, the framework we use, says this about that in their documentation: 
"The month names will be localized according to the system's locale 

Can you please check if by choosing a date format *and* by setting your 
system locale to Chinese/China you are able to get what you want?

Thank you!
