After installing Tableau Desktop 10.3 on Czech Mac OS X or Windows, thumbnail images might be missing and the texts do not appear to be localized (the content is pseudo localized). See an example in a screenshot below.

Additionally, you may notice the pseudo-localization issue in the folders names of "My Tableau Repository".
