Wrong calculation function parameter separator in swedish version

Summary

Wrong calculation function parameter separator in swedish version

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.0.3

Operating system version

MacOSX 10.8.2

Description of the issue

The following calculation functions have a comma (,) instead of semicolon (;) as a parameter separator in the swedish version of FileMaker Advanced on MacOS. If you ask me I would prefer comma instead of semicolon since that tends to be a standard in many programming languages. In a swedish FileMaker client the colon must be replaced or FileMaker will evoke a error message when trying to save the calculation.

All of the functions are in category Design Functions

FieldBounds ( databas, layout, fält )
FieldIDs ( databas, layout )
FieldNames ( databas, layout )
FieldRepetitions ( databas, layout, fält )
FieldStyle ( databas, layout, fält )
FieldType ( databas, fält )
GetNextSerialValue ( databas, fält )
RelationInfo ( databas, relation )

Steps to reproduce the problem

Start a swedish Client om MacOS X

Open Dataviewer and goto tab second tab called "Övervaka"

Select category Design in the dropdown list above the list of functions

Look at the following functions

FieldBounds
FieldIDs
FieldNames
FieldRepetitions
FieldStyle
FieldType
GetNextSerialValue
RelationInfo

Expected result

FieldBounds ( databas; layout: fält )
FieldIDs ( databas: layout )
FieldNames ( databas: layout )
FieldRepetitions ( databas: layout: fält )
FieldStyle ( databas; layout; fält )
FieldType ( databas; fält )
GetNextSerialValue ( databas; fält )
RelationInfo ( databas; relation )

Actual result

FieldBounds ( databas, layout, fält )
FieldIDs ( databas, layout )
FieldNames ( databas, layout )
FieldRepetitions ( databas, layout, fält )
FieldStyle ( databas, layout, fält )
FieldType ( databas, fält )
GetNextSerialValue ( databas, fält )
RelationInfo ( databas, relation )

Workaround

Manually change the comma to a semicolon
