How hard could it be to allow tools like FastTrack, Metadata Workbench and so on to use local date formats rather than US ones?

Dates like 1/17/12 are anathema in my part of the world, where DMY is the default order.

If that's too hard, why not hard code every date in ISO 8601 format (CCYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS)?

I agree. Same with numeric formats.

Why, for example, do I have to switch my German Windows-client to English-US regional settings to work with Quality-Stage Match-Designer in order to avoid errors related to incorrect decimal-separators?

How hard could it be to transform that to the appropiate format needed by the server?
