I'm using LibreOffice 3.4.3 on Lubuntu. The locale I'm using is es_AR, I installed LibreOffice with sudo apt-get install libreoffice, then installed the Spanish language package with Synaptics (libreoffice-l10n-es).

So far, so good, the menus and the interface in general is translated to Spanish, but in Calc the formulas remain in English (eg SUM() instead of SUMA()). If I enter SUMA(A1:B1) manually, the result is #NAME? . The option

Preferences->Calc->Formulas->Use the formulas in english

is unchecked (I see this option in spanish, of course)

Am I missing something?

Do some function names in Calc appear in english others in local language (mixed up)?
