Description of the issue

Bad: Functions written in german and passed to "evaluate()" do not evaluate when "User interface language" is set to english



Bye

Steps to reproduce the problem

Test function:
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Berechne("Hole(SystemDatum)")
OR in english language
Evaluate("Hole(SystemDatum)").

Notice that the passed function is written in german.

Set "User interface language" under "Edit > Preferences" to german. Evaluate() gives back the system date. All good.

Now:
^^^^

Set "User interface language" under "Edit > Preferences" to english.

Filemaker gives back an error, when Evaluate() is trying to evaluate "Hole(SystemDatum)".

Workaround

The problem. We have to develop in english instead in of german to avoid those problems. Some find that time consuming.

Maybe this issue can be fixed somehow?
