I love Dr.Java, and I would like to know if there is a
way for us to translate Dr.Java to other languages like
Portuguese, French, Spanish, Italian, et cetera?
Thank you and a proper continuation of this.

I'd like to put my lenguaje there too!

We have not yet invested the resources required to
internationalize DrJava. All of the text displays and
messages would have to be located in a resources file and
all references to text would have to indirect through the
resources file. I will put this request on the list of
issues that may be addressed in my course on production
programming in the Spring (2006). If we refactor DrJava in
this way, then a translation can be created simply by
creating a new resources file with the appropriate language
text for each entry in the file.
We would gladly allow versions of DrJava customized to
different languages to be redistributed by sites that
develop the customized form. (Our open source license
already allows this but we would be willing to provide some
coordination and support.) If we can find a pool of
international users who are willing to create the resource
files to support various languages then I would place this
project near the top of our priority list for new
development work this Spring.
