    Most installer pages are standard. If NSIS supports the kyrgyz laguage, which I don't know, then it will be enough to add that to the language lists in nppsetup.nsi..

    If you refer to the license agreement or the component descriptions, there is no automatic way to get them translated. Thus I get english description for components, for instance, while most of the installer is written in french. I'll check the NSIS installer docs about this, but there may be no way for these elements.

    Don: did you ever try this?

    I have checked the nsis forums and found out that there is a Unicode fork which is not officially supported by nullsoft but is being kept updated.
    So it would be great if Don emplemployed that version, so that translators of Unicode-using locales could contribute their  translations for the installer…

    Then it could be a good idea to email Don with a link to that fork, as well as to evaluation data if available, showing how reliable the fork is an people releasing software like it. This part is optional, but actual positive feedback would certainly help.

    Ok, I follow your advice.
    To everyone, who is interested in NSIS Unicode mod, there is a discussion:

    According to that thread, that mod is stable enough, and is being officially used by such monsters as Open Office, Mozilla Firefox etc.
