Curious about this, too. Also tried to figure it out earlier.

Found an option in "Configuration" ---> "Common Preferences" --->
"Display" ---> "General" ---> "Summary View" to configure  "Date
format". But that doesn't seem to have any affect on how the date is
displayed in the headers. So maybe this could be changed?

The date is not just displayed in English only in the reply headers
like mentioned in the OP, it's also displayed in English only in "short
headers on message view".

Which leads to another question: is it possible to change the
language in which the header names are displayed in Sylpheed generally?

The header names displayed in "header pane above message view" are
translated correctly (using same language as rest of Sylpheed). But the
header names in "short headers on message view" are displayed in
English only. "Short headers on message view" also seem to be used for
printouts, so printouts also contain the header names in English only.

Is there a way to change this? Searching for this i found:

"The manual included in Sylpheed (for 1.0.x, English)" / "Sylpheed
User's Manual":


which mentions a "Translate header name" option.

But it doesn't seem to be available in the latest versions of Sylpheed?
Is that because it was removed in later versions (title of manual says
"for 1.0.x")?

If yes, is it still possible to change the language of the header names
somehow? If yes, could someone please explain how?

Thank you very much in advance.
