Hi Nelson

The Dev mailing list is not the appropriate place for this question. I
suggest that you post this on the Users list.

Having said that, I find that this is great news (for me as a Portuguese
citizen) and for the project (Marketing?)

Answering briefly I can tell you that if the PCs have the Portuguese version
of Windows and/or the Regional settings are set to Portuguese (they usually
are) then the installer will detect this and use the Portuguese interface
(menus) and set the Default language to Portuguese as well as install the
Portuguese (AO 1990) dictionary.

The only thing you need to install separately is the offline help. Make sure
you get the file ending with helppack_pt.msi

However I don't know if there is an easy way to do a system wide deployment.

Hope this helps ;)
