      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Whatever the operating system's language or an explicitly set default locale, JFileChooser is always displayed in English.

      (Uncomment line 8,) compile and run the code below.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Labels and buttons according to current default locale.
      ACTUAL -
      English

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      import java.util.*;
      import javax.swing.*;

      public class FileChooserTest {

        public FileChooserTest() {
      // If your operating system is English, set to any non-English locale.
      // Locale.setDefault(Locale.FRENCH); // line 8
          System.out.println(Locale.getDefault());
          JFileChooser fileChooser= new JFileChooser();
          fileChooser.showDialog(null, null);
      // fileChooser.showOpenDialog(null);
      // fileChooser.showSaveDialog(null);
        }

        static public void main(String args[]) {
          SwingUtilities.invokeLater(FileChooserTest::new);
        }
      }
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------
