    since it's open source.. i'd assume it can be in any language you could want(as long as it could be translated)

    just pop open the skin, and change the words on the buttons for the most part (at least that's what i get from looking at the code.) about the only part I can see that that wouldn't be 100% true for would be the plugin manager, but i seem to remember everything supports localization, or will.
    ---------
    I'll do the bumbling, and i'll be the idiot.
    if you've got a "stupid" question, search for some of mine!

    Yes thats certainly the plan..... the problem with traditional localization is that this is a plugin based system. So even if you change an entire skin to your own language...if you add a plugin, its setting's screen would be in english. We have plans for a translation layer that would fix all of the above, but as of now its a fairly low priority (we haven't received a lot of foreign users afaik).

    Another change though, is that we have been moving towards a more icon based and less text based interface (obviously some things are better as text and will remain so) so the required number of translations is rapidly decreasing.

    ok that is good to know. I imagine the setting screen is what going to remain in text, but if you need help when the translation process start I could do the french.
