In Verbum 7, you insisted I should practice my language skills by putting my Saints section from the Home page in Spanish. In Verbum 8 you insist that I should have the Catholic Topical Index in Spanish ... this is far more annoying, has been pointed out before, and persists. It shouldn't be hard to have a single method of determining the preferred language of the user.

Not sure this is what you mean, but does UILang command help?

Unfortunately, it does not ... and I've tried several variations of setting everything to Spanish, exiting, setting everything to English, exiting ....

Do you have Índice de temas católicos in your Library? If you don't need this resource, does hiding it solve the problem?

The general problem of picking between multiple translations of the same resource (e.g., for Lexham Survey of Theology, Catholic Topical Index, Dataset Documentation, etc.) is something we don't have a great solution for right now but want to solve in the future.

That worked. Thank you Bradley.

If a similar problem happens in Verbum 8, you may be able to fix it by hiding the Santos resource.

Is this not something that the user's prioritization solves?

No, it didn't which surprised me ...

It does, in some situations. In this case, Catholic Topical Index has English headwords, but the Spanish version of the resource has Spanish headwords. Because prioritisation affects look up by data type (or headword + language), prioritising one over the other doesn't make a difference. (And we have chosen not to make prioritisation be an all-purpose “I like this resource better than that one” system.)
