--- Comment #6 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
As in comment 3, functional workarounds already exist for handling decimal
marker of CSV (or other separators) during multiple language text import to

However, it would be a reasonable L10n enhancement of the Calc "Text Import"
dialog to add support to specify the resulting number formats on
import--decimal separator and thousands separator--and display sample in the
Preview area.

Enhancement would be to provide additional control of the imported number
format independent of the User Interface Language setting (Tools -> Options ->
Language Settings -> Language) or the Language setting picked for the source
CSV text file.

>From UX perspective could either specify the resulting Language setting, or
possibly could define output field for decimal separator and thousands
separators. Or maybe both.

Closing 39830 as duplicate of this enhancement request.
