Pale Moon language packs
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
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
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
configuration change. Go to the advanced configuration editor (type about:config in the address bar and press
- 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
