Quick documentation for .NET Framework not in English

Hi,

I installed Rider and the .NET Framework on a Windows system with German locale. When I open the "Quick documentation" in Rider for a .NET Framework object, I get a German documentation, which is kind of weird. E.g. the translated documentation for "Window.ShowDialog()" does not make any sense at all.

Where does Rider get this translated documentation from? It is not from here: https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/dotnet/api/system.windows.window.show?view=netframework-4.7.2.  And how can I force Rider to show the original English documentation?

Hi Martin! 

Could you please add screenshots of the documentation you see? 

Thank you!

Especially the very first sentence "Öffnet ein Fenster, und gibt nur, ..." is incomplete and grammatically not correct. I could not find any version of .NET Framework under the link above where Microsoft uses this incorrect translation.

Hi Martin! 

Thank you for the details. 

It seems like you installed a localized Framework. The best way is to remove it and install the english version. Also, please update Rider to the newest version

Please let me know how it helps.

Hi Alexandra,

I switched my project from .NET Framework 4.7.2 to 4.8 and now I get the API documentation in English.

I am using Rider 2021.1.5 and will switch soon to the yesterday released 2021.2.

Regards,
Martin
