    Default System.getProperty with foreign language

    Hello All,
    I've developed a program that uses System.getProperty("user.home"). However, when I change the regional settings to a foreign language, I get a different (and wrong) path. Instead of the usual c:\documents and settings\administrator, when I switched the language to Turkish, I got C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTİNGS\ADMİNİSTRATOR. Obviously, no such path exists, and so my program gets stuck (same thing happens in other foreign languages.
    How can I make the System.getProperty return the "normal" path ?

    Thanks in advance,

    What are you trying to do with the foreign language? Localize the UI? Look into the ResourceBundle object that the java api provides to handle that.
