Hallo Ivailo,

please try to CC the mailing list as well.  Maybe someone else had
answered more timely otherwise :-)

If setting LANG to ru works, then you are obviously on a good track! Try
to confirm the used location of ru.mo by renaming that file and
retrying. I could imagine that GnuCash picks up c:\Program Files\gnucash
instead of c:\soft\gnucash\inst by looking into the registry. You can
work-around that by uninstalling GnuCash, changing the registry entry or
other similar hacks.

When you switch to bg, are the standard GTK+ translations active, i.e.
strings in standard dialogs, OK, Cancel, File>Save, File>Print Check>?
If they are, your bg.mo should work as well, I think.

PS: You might be interested in translating the installer as well :-)
Take a look at packaging/win32/gnucash.iss.in for that.
