I've configured my system to German locale (de_DE.UTF-8). However, kdm and lightdm-kde-greeter are always displayed in English, and the KDE apps are either partially (kconfig) or completely (kate) in English - as if most of the translation files aren't found, or my settings are intentionally ignored. I tried setting LANG, LANGUAGE and LC_ALL, Language in .dmrc (root and user), kdmrc and greeter.conf, without avail; kdeglobals is set to Language=de and kde-l10n installed.

Sorry, forgot to mention the package versions; they're currently all marked stable:
You haven't by chance set kde-base/kde-l10n[minimal]?
$ equery u kde-l10n
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[ : I - package is installed with flag ]
[ Colors : set, unset ]
* Found these USE flags for kde-base/kde-l10n-4.14.3:
- - handbook : Enable handbooks generation for KDE4.
- - linguas_ar : Arabic locale
+ + linguas_de : German locale
- - minimal : Install a very minimal build (disables, for example,
plugins, fonts, most drivers, non-critical features)
There is a new version in tree. Please test with that.
