OpenClinica supports internationalization and localization.  This allows users and developers to adapt the software for a specific region or language by adding locale-specific components and translating text. A significant number of changes related to internationalization and localization have been implemented in OpenClinica 3.1.3. This chapter applies to OpenClinica 3.1.3 and later versions.

By default, OpenClinica is configured with English language support files in CATALINA_HOME/webapps/OpenClinica/WEB-INF/classes/org/akaza/openclinica/i18n. Other languages/locales may be added as described in this guide.
