Try to search better, here is just one example with a bit more info:

It seems that since revision 4334 this has changed, but I didn't find the time to test it.

Well it mostly works out of the box, just change the font settings in two places and language (if
needed). I am using it on Japanese Win2K, occasionally in Bulgarain (the menus).

I expect to have some time in September to look into the code and patch it for better i18n support.
No promise, just hope.

Kalin.
