 - The buddybar follows the language settings of the blog it is on, not of
 the user that is logged in. Meaning that a Spanish speaker (with language
 settings -> Spanish on their settings) will see a nice Spanish buddybar
 when on their own blog, but when they go to an English blog (the main blog
 for example) then the buddybar turns to English, even though it is 'their'
 buddybar, with their blogs and links to their profile etc. Is this by
 design or a bug?

 - As the translation is available, I think the language of the main
 blog/home theme should change according to the (logged in) user visiting
 it, else they are lost on the community homepage. However, currently it
 sticks strictly to the language settings of the main blog.
 As the community homepage is almost separate from the main blog, it should
 follow the user-set language as well when loaded.
