Overview

This page discusses how to switch the Aptana Studio interface to a different langauge, such as Japanese or Chinese

You can change the language of the user interface to a different language than what your operating system uses by default. Follow the instructions below to change the language of the UI. Note that while a reasonable percentage of the core UI may be translated, items like Titanium-specific features have not, so they will appear in English.
