AnkiMobile shows a translation from random Language when no translation exists

Hi, while I was testing the Polish translation in AnkiMobile I saw that parts that had not yet been translated were shown in German. I also checked other languages and it happens there too (for example the “Empty Cards” text in the settings appears in Polish when Language is set to Japanese).

When a Language has an active Translator it doesn’t really make a difference but when there’s none it can make people confused when they see a text from a completely different language (I think that English text should appear).

Perhaps you have German listed above English in your preferred language order in the iOS settings? AnkiMobile asks iOS for your language preferences, and will use a translation from the highest language on the list that has one.

Oh, I actually had. Didn’t think of that. Thanks for reply, problem solved.
