Applying Date Format

I'd like to configure my CA installation to display dates in format DD/MM/YYYY using locale pt_PT.

I came across this and followed the instructions there.

I edited file /app/lib/Parsers/TimeExpressionParser/pt_PT.lang and changed value monthComesFirstInDelimitedDate to 0.
However, setting UI locale to portuguese (MANAGE > My preferences > GENERAL > User Inteface locale) does not change the date presentation format (it keeps being displayed as MM/DD/YYYY)

I tested clearing temporary files in /app/tmp and performing maintenance operations (rebuild search indexes, reloard sort values, rebuild hierarquical values) but DateRange values keep being displayed as MM/DD/YYYY

I also tested setting UI locale to English (Australia) and in this case the Date format is applied correctly (it's displayed as DD/MM/YYYY).

What must I do to make the pt_PT locale behave the same as the en_AU locale?

Thanks in advance
