After upgrade to 5.1, issue attributes sometimes have French translations, how to fix?

I have a standalone JIRA on Linux, has been running for over a year. I just upgraded from 4.3 to 5.1 using the upgrade tool. It went surprisingly smoothly. In general JIRA 5.1 is quite a good improvement.

Oddly enough, the Status and Resolution columns in the Issue Navigator now appear in French instead of English. This is an English default site with no one using other languages. And the French translation is not consistently applied to these items on every row of the listing. Right now what should Open shows Ouvertes, and Closed shows Firmee. The resolution for Ouvertes is Unresolved, but the resolution for Firmee is Corrige.

Sometimes the English translation returns for Ouvertes but the Close issues still show Firmee. I have not yet discovered a pattern for influencing these behaviors, they seem random.

I found https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/46265/problem-with-language-mix-of-english-and-french which seemed similar, but found no solutions there.

I would appreciate a workaround or bug fix for this problem.

Tom,

I just discovered this after a bit of messing around. There are in fact pre-defined French translations that shouldn't be there. There is a bug ticket for this open with a work around.

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/TRANS-554

There is a workround in that ticket that should help to get you to a non-French added state.

This exactly nails my problem, Ivan! Thank you, many, many thanks!

Would you happen to have any type of language packs installed from https://translations.atlassian.com?

Yes, in fact. Sounds like you have encountered this problem before. Do you know a workaround?

Thanks
