Altap Salamander from version 2.53 fully supports language translations. If you are interested in translations, please read following steps.

Step 1: Look at Language Translations section of this forum. Your language could be already there (as finished translation or translation under development you can help with).

Step 2: Download latest Altap Translator, install it, read included readme.txt file, and learn how to use it. Feel free to post your questions or ideas on this forum.

Step 3: If your language is not mentioned or seems to be abandoned, create a new post with subject "XYZ version of Altap Salamander" and let others know you are working on translation and you are looking for cooperation (see Dutch translation as example).
