Pale Moon language packsIf you prefer to have the Pale Moon user interface in your native language (not US-English), then
these language packs can help you! They are based on the Mozilla Firefox language packs, with additional
translations done for specific Pale Moon user interface components. Pale Moon will not be
released with installers in individual languages, but installing these language packs on the
US-English browser will pretty much have the same effect.
It should be noted that while these language packs convert most of the english in the user interface, they
are not a complete translation as of now. Some Pale Moon specific options and texts are
not localized (yet) and will show up as English if you use the packs marked as incomplete. If you want to help the Pale Moon project by translating these texts, please
hop over to this forum board and help out!
Please note the installation instructions, just installing the language pack and letting
Pale Moon restart is not enough! Also keep in mind that these language packs are a convenience and
that the browser is and remains an English language product at its heart.
A few simple steps is all that is needed to install these language packs. You have the choice of 2
different methods, either by installing the Zing extension or by using the instructions to perform a
one-time preference change:
- Download the language pack .xpi from this page (below). Choose to immediately "install" in the Pale
Moon browser (the default when left-clicking), skipping the need to save it first.
- Install Zing from here:
- Click the Z! flag in your toolbar, and select the language you prefer from the drop-down.
- Let the browser restart when asked.
- Download the language pack .xpi from this page (below). You may also choose to immediately
"install" in the Pale Moon browser (the default when left-clicking), skipping the need to save it first
(go to step 3). You do not have to restart Pale Moon yet.
- If you downloaded the .xpi first, double-click the .xpi in explorer/other file manager. Confirm
that you want to install the .xpi in your browser. This will add the language pack to Pale Moon.
You do not have to restart Pale Moon yet.
- To actually switch to the new language, you also have to make a configuration change. Go to the
advanced configuration editor (type about:config in the address bar and
- Find the setting general.useragent.locale which is set to "en-US" by
default. Double-click it to change.
- Enter the language code for your locale, including region if applicable. E.g.: "fr" if you live in
france, "ja" if you live in Japan, "es-MX" if you want Mexican Spanish. Use the same
code as the file name of the language pack you downloaded.
- Close Pale Moon completely and restart it.
And that's it! You can now use Pale Moon in your native language.
Note that these language packs only change the interface language. They don't change the
language used for the spellchecker.
To download a spellchecker dictionary of your choice, go to: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/
Or right-click any normal text input field, and in the pop-up menu select Languages -> Add

These language packs are for the latest version of the browser (v25.6). They will
not work on older versions. If you are using an older version of the browser, please go to the archived versions page and download the approporiate language pack for your browser
version. Also note that only partially completed (in progress) and completed language packs are listed here
that have an active translator. Language packs that do not have an active translator are moved to the

Important note: These language packs are provided AS-IS.
We are not the authors of these language packs, and cannot provide support for the actual contents of them.
You may want to check out Babelzilla for most of the active translators for Pale Moon if you need to get in
touch with them, but please understand that most of the existing translations are taken from Firefox
