We have no official translation for "Spanish (Latin)". So I'm not sure how you can get that language to show in the UI language list. That language for sure does not appear on Windows.

Oh, maybe I am wrong, it is true only "Spanish" appears, a thousand apologies, that is the language that when I choose it causes me the error.

I send 2 screenshots so you can see the sections that have an error.

I tried multiple times to reproduce your preference loading issue on Windows. Unfortunately at this point of time I have been unsuccessful.

Maybe you are not successful because as I explained from the beginning that I report this error, my system is MacOs hig sierra 10.13.6. My computer is an Apple Macbook. And apparently you are using Windows to replicate the error. You will have to get an Apple computer with MacOs X installed to be able to replicate the error I am telling you.

i can confirm some problems with scribus 1.5.5 and 1.5.6.svn-r23404 on macOS 10.14.6 in spanish.
after changing the ui language to 'spanish' i'm not able to reach the preferences any more. in 1.5.5 the menu looks a bit strange (see screenshot). scribus 1.5.6 doesn't show the strange .pdf entries, but the prefs won't open either.
when i close a document, scribus crashes with 'signal 11'. this doesn't happen with a german or english ui.
i had to change the ui language back manually in 'prefs150.xml' to use scribus again.

I've fixed the menu item issue but cannot trace the crash right now. Looks to be in Qt or in OSX.
