    I\'ve been looking through the threads to find out what languages Cpanel is available in. Would like to offer various languages on my system as we have a very diverse foreign community here in Tokyo.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    The right direction is: There is spanish included with CPanel (about 30 text-strings). These are mostly system response text-strings. There is no other additional translation available currently. I have made a theme myself and have translated into german, then translated the file mentioned above into german but still not everything is translated into german.

    If you need japanese translation (or any other):
    1) make a custom theme and translate all static text (approx. 150 files)
    2) translate the english or spanish language file (will give you some system responses in the language of your choice) and put it in the appropriate folder.
    3) When creating an account select your language.
    4) In the same step select the custom (translated) theme corresponding to your language.
    5) be ready to still read english (system responses, File Manager, 3rd party scripts).
    6) Be happy. It could be worse.

    I can see the part for selecting the custom theme, but I don't see a place to select the language...
