Multi-language OSCAR

Trying out the multi-language features of OSCAR has never been easier.

Although the number of language packs included in the new OSCAR 9.06 base distribution is still small, the mechanism to perform basic language translation is reasonably easy, and trying it out is as simple as telling your web browser (easiest if you are running Firefox), that you would like to see OSCAR in another language.

Would you like to try OSCAR in French? If you are running OSCAR 9.06, all you need to do is open your Firefox preferences, go to the Content tab and under Languages, choose "French [Fr]". Now, restart your browser, point it at OSCAR and voilĂ !

Please let us know if you would like to volunteer to translate OSCAR to a new language. It is as simple as editing a single file and swapping out the English words for the dialect of your choice.
