It simply reads the standard output and standard error output from the

If you select something other than "full make output" in the KDevelop
settings dialog then its also parsed and some parts are left out,
however this shouldn't happen for error messages.

One thing you could try: Open Settings->KDevelop and make sure that
"Force english compiler output" is activated. If its already been
activated I'm out of ideas, if it wasn't activated before and is now
recheck wether output now is shown properly. If so please file a
bugreport on (then I've broken something in the output
widget, though it worked when I tested it).
