Pidgin: How to change the language of portable gaim interface?

Hi all,

In fact, I'm the first time to use portable gaim, after I download the 1.5 (Multilingual), the default language of interface is English, and I want to change it to Chinese, I have already try to replace whole the "locate" directory into my portable HD, but it still cannot make any change...

And I found that, if I run the portable gaim in my home PC (My PC is already installed gaim 1.5), it can show the Chinese interface, if I run the portable gaim in other PC, it will change back to English...what should I do? Please help me...

System Language

By default, Gaim detects the language of the host OS and uses that. So, if you use it on an English PC, it shows as English. On a Chinese PC, it shows as Chinese. Is that what's happening?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks for your reply,

Thanks for your reply, but...
It seems not... I have 3 PCs in my home, they both are same settings with Chinese XP, however, the portable gaim can only show Chinese interface in one of them, and that one is already installed gaim v1.5...

GAIMLANG

You can set the language with the environmental variable %GAIMLANG% Wink

ex: GAIMLANG=it
