Hi everybody!

I just want to add this piece of code since I have tried to figure this out for a couple of years... :D but solved it now and it might save someone some time...

In order to force the language settings (in my case the settings are in the page in a multilingual site), I use the following code:

  import grok
  from zope.i18n.interfaces import IModifiableUserPreferredLanguages
  class MyView(grok.View):
    def update(self):
      language = self.context.language # Language settings stored in context,
				       # iso-two letter style "sv", "en"
      mupl = IModifiableUserPreferredLanguages(self.request) 

Still dreaming about the Grok cookbook... :D

Mvh Sebastian
