Do you think it is good to localize (or allow customization of) keyboard
shortcuts? I am referring to the context of an application, not a web site.
For instance, in Spain, to save, the Ctrl + G (Guardar) key combination is
used pervasively instead of Ctrl + S (Save). However, across the board there
is little consistency as for example the Spanish Ubuntu operating system
uses Ctrl + S and Spanish Microsoft Windows uses Ctrl + P for printing
whereas printing is "imprimir" in Spanish. I have been trying to find some
logic but it seems all a bit arbitrary.
My initial take was that standards should prevail, but isn´t that similar to
all of us being forced to speak English?
Maybe you can point me to best practices, data on user preferences or plain
