    maybe if we keep asking someone will know.

    I would love to have several languages for Xskin.

    We use it almost exclusively.

    It's Possible

    Hello,

    I'm not sure what dxer meant by "within," but it is quite possible to translate CPanel interface into other languages. I've translated one of the CPanel skins I use into Japanese and it seems to work fine. Just explore the skin files, translate every non-code English word into your desired language, and install it as a separate skin (e.g. give it a different name, etc).

    I have no idea if it's possible to give each user language options to choose from for his/her CPanel "within" CPanel, but if it is just to translate themes and have them as separate skins, I know it's possible to do so with xSkin, too.

    I'm a reseller, so I'm not sure nor interested in translating WHM into another language, but I think it's possible, judging from what I've seen in WHM xSkin files.

    One tip from me is that you should be careful with encoding method (e.g. iso8859-1, Shift_JIS, etc), especially when you are trying to translate them into Unicodes, or you'd get "funny" letters (e.g. %#"$&$!).

    Hope I'm not too off the topic. :)
