Alfred doesn't display localized directory names properly


Recommended Posts

Some directory names in macOS are localized. The directory has a ".localized" extension, and contains a ".localized" subdirectory with a ".strings" XML file containing the localized name of the directory. Alfred doesn't currently display these names properly. It just displays the unlocalized ".localized" directory name. This can be very confusing in many instances as the names in Alfred won't match the Finder. See example screenshot.

Alfred's File System navigation is akin to navigating via shell, so this will always show the raw folder names as if you were to type ls in Terminal.


I'm moving this to feature suggestions, as if there is a demand for this, I could investigate showing the localised name either at the bottom or near the date.
