PC-BSD uses the Pootle management system for managing its localizations. Pootle makes it easy to find out if your native language is fully supported by PC-BSD. You can also assist translating any menus that have not been translated yet as Pootle provides a very easy to use editor for submitting translated text.

To see the status of a localization, open up the PCBSD Translation System in your browser, as seen in Figure X-XX:

The localizations PC-BSD users have requested are listed alphabetically on the left. If your language is missing and you would like to help in its translation, send an email to the translations mailing list so it can be added.

The green bar in the Overall Completion column indicates the percentage of PC-BSD menus that have been localized. If a language is not at 100%, it means that the menus that currently aren't translated will appear in English instead of in that language.

If you click on a language name then click on the hyperlink Name pcbsd, you'll see each menu item. The example shown in Figure X-XX is for the Greek localization:

In this example, the menu for CrashHandler is complete, but the one for LifePreserver is not.
