Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.80 (sub 74), branch: blender2.7, commit date: 2019-06-04 22:32, hash: rBe80cbdac331a
Worked: It's like this for all 2.8 versions I have

Short description of error

I use Blender on Windows and whenever I use a tool, the tooltips in the Status bar show MacOS keys, instead of Ctrl or Alt.

Also the tooltip in the N menu under View > Use Local Camera has a typo: Use a local camera in this view, rather than scene's active camera camera.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open Blender and use any tool that has Ctrl or Alt modifiers with the Status bar visible. When rotating the camera, instead of showing Alt for Axis Snap, it shows the MacOS "Alt" key.
Ctrl is replaced by the " ^ " symbol.

thanks for the typo notice, fixed.

As for the shortcuts symbols… am pretty sure @William Reynish (billreynish) will want to chime in here? ;)

(for what is worth, we got same OSX symbols under linux too, so assuming actual OS is just not taken into account for those?).

We already have a paper cut for this: T63012
