If your language of choice is not listed, there are 2 methods of getting Sunbird Portable to appear in your locale:

Method 1: Copy it right in

The easiest way to get Sunbird Portable in your own language is to simply copy a local installation of Sunbird (in your prefered language) into Sunbird Portable. To do this:

  1. Install Sunbird Portable to your portable device as outlined on the support page
  2. Delete all the files within the SunbirdPortable\App\sunbird\ directory
  3. Copy your local Sunbird files to that same directory (you can usually find them in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Sunbird\ ).
  4. Use Sunbird Portable as normal

You now have Sunbird Portable in your own language. Messages from the launcher will still be in English (Ex: Another copy of Sunbird is running...). This will be resolved in a future release.

Method 2: Language Packs and Quick Locale Switcher

The second method is useful if you don't have access to a local install of Sunbird or if you want to switch between multiple languages. Here are the steps.

  1. Install Sunbird Portable to your portable drive
  2. Start Sunbird Portable
  3. Download the Quick Locale Switcher extension (right-click or control click and select to save it)
  4. Download the language pack you'd like to use (right-click or control click and select to save it)
  5. In Sunbird, click Tools and the Addons. Click the Extensions Tab and then click the Install button. Select the language pack you downloaded.
  6. Repeat for the Locale Switcher extenion
  7. Close Sunbird Portable, wait for it to stop writing to your drive, and then restart it to complete installation of the extensions.
  8. Click Tools - Quick Locale Switcher and then select the language you added on.
  9. Restart Sunbird Portable for the change to take effect.

Now, this method works pretty well and should work for just about everyone. The advantage is that this is a bit cleaner and you can easily switch between multiple languages. The disadvantage is that if you drop a local profile into Sunbird Portable, you'll need to perform these steps again.
