Inconsistency in forum topic headings

Admittedly this is nitpicking, but when I look at sentence discussions in the Norwegian course the top line is "Topic: Norwegian (Bokmål)". Compare this with "Topic: English (Spanish)" for discussions in the English for Spanish speakers course, "Topic: English (Italian)" in English for Italian speakers, etc. It looks as if the Norwegian course is intended for speakers of Bokmål.

Actually it depends on what your UI language is. If your UI language is set to something other than the UI language for that topic, it will show the topic's UI language in parentheses.

For example, if you set your UI language to Spanish, then look at the Norwegian sentences, the topic probably reads "Topic: Norwegian (Bokmål) (English)". Actually, technically since your UI language is Spanish now it will probably read "Tema: Noruego (Bokmål) (Inglés)", but you get the idea.

The punctuation should probably be fixed for clarification. Thanks!
