Hello everyone,icon_smile.gif

I am new to OmegaT, although I am not new to CAT tools in general.

Even though I can't find where to switch the language of OmegaT interface. It somehow detects that I have a Polish version of Windows, so it displays the Polish interface too, but it is incomplete and I would prefer the English interface.

What are the steps to change it? I use OmegaT 2.1.1.

Regards,

Piotr

It depends on your operating system Feb 23, 2010

OmegaT is a Java program, and uses the standard Java method to specify a locale.
At the command line level, that's
java -jar -Duser.language=en

Depending on your operating system, there are different means of achieving this.
Under Windows, you can also edit an .ini file.

Check the English manual (F1), changing language is explained in the second topic: Installing and running OmegaT.


I use OmegaT 2.1.1.

Why that specific version?
The stable is 2.0.5, and the latest beta is 2.1.3.

Didier
