That one was not the little bug I mentioned (the one that I had fixed 24 hours ago). Instead that was a coincidental choice on your end. You entered Okt. for October. A reasonable choice perhaps, but yesterday the app ignored non-english month names. That Germanic alternative, and many others, will work just fine starting now. If you enter "Okt. 2, 1999", you will now see data for October 2, 1999. Try entering a date with French month names or maybe Italian or Danish or Spanish. Major western European languages and a few non-European languages are covered. They should all translate properly now, I hope. Date entry is flexible. If you enter "août 11", the app will calculate and display results for 11 August 2020 (without a year, it assumes the current year). If you enter "Decembwe 7, 1941", the app will ignore the spelling error and display results for 7 December 1941. Enter "17 Giugno 1861", and you get June 17, 1861.
