I asked the zypper maintainer to check how much effort it is to make
zypper fetch all system locales. It knows about it from

In my system, the content of /var/lib/zypp/RequestedLocales is:

but as I said, zypper is in English when using LC_ALL=it, in Italian
when using LC_ALL=it_IT.
The strange thing is that /usr/share/locale/it_IT/LC_MESSAGES/ is
empty while /usr/share/locale/it/LC_MESSAGES/ contains over 850 files,
including with Italian translation (from package zypper).
There is another, from package translation-update-it, in
/usr/share/locale-langpack/it/LC_MESSAGES/ that is the file actually
used by zypper.
So it seems that zypper uses in it/LC_MESSAGES when
LC_ALL=it_IT is used, but fails to find when LC_ALL=it is

A similar thing happens in the oS 12.1 testing installation.

Bug report?
Hmm that would be a problem in glibc, but I'm not expert in all these LC_*
