Day 40 - formatted date issue

Forums > 100 Days of SwiftUI


100 days of swiftUI - Day 40 - Project 8, part 2 - Moonshot App Hi. When I convert the date format, I get a « French-style format » (day, month, year), just as expected. However, the month remains in English and is not translated into French (may and february instead of mai and février, for example). Is this normal operation? Why? How can I change this? My Mac and the xCode simulator are both set for the French language. Thanks for any help and have a nice day. Pierre.


Follow these steps

set French as default and re-run simulator.



Perfect, works as expected now! Thank you very much!
