I would like to make my Linux computer bilingual. Is it possible for two languages to be displayed at the same time as the languages of the GUI? If possible - How can I do it?


  • In my experience using Ubuntu in French, half the GUI is still in English anyway ;-)

  • As far as I know, there is no way to do this. I have to imagine that if it were a feature, it would have taken an immense amount of time for the developers to add, and most people wouldn't use it.

Translation libraries are not developed this way. It will just complicate things further to have a UI with simultaneous multilingual messages, because some formatting and features only make sense in a certain language.
