In PowerShell 3.0 there are no help files available in the Norwegian language.

I would consider missing help as top priority here. Even for peoples who can read English, there is a big danger to misunderstood something. Reading documentation in a foreign language can be very challenging.

Calling the -online Help every time I need verbose English Help, is no solution. Because I am sitting in a corporate Network with Proxy and no Internet Access!

I have downloaded the English HelpFiles with Save-Help -UICulture 'en-US' but I can't access this Helpfiles. Because the Help depends on the UI Culture of my current Windows setting.

I can't display them without changing my UI Culture in Windows!

Should I switch my Windows settings always if I need verbose English help?

I'd like the Help system to AUTOMATICALLY display Norwegian help by default but if not available then to "failover" to the English version if installed.

Please also consider to add the -Culture parameter to Get-Help, in order to:

Get-Help Get-Comand -Culture "en-US" -Full # should display the English verbose Help
Get-Help Get-Comand -Culture "nb-NO" -Full # should display the Norwegian verbose Help
