[HELP] - Using French but get mixed msgs in Voicemail promp

Using Voicemail for incoming user defined to be french, I get French prompts but the number of messages is given in english as is the date.
What have I forgotten. All the sounds files are in the fr directory so its not defaulting to english on absence of a file. It would appear that SayDate and SayDigits just want to speak english.
I’m using V1.4 on Ubuntu
