Since I am working for German and English Newspapers alike, I often need to do screen shots of programs in different languages. On Linux no problem, but on some Windows systems maybe even a violation of licence or law… So for MS screenshots I tried the new Wine version 1.0 on Linux – that seems to run great – if you’re not a gamer. You call the program simply with the language code you need:
LANG=en_US wine .wine/drive_c/Programme/xca/xca.exe
for example starts Xca in English, while:
LANG=de_DE wine .wine/drive_c/Programme/xca/xca.exe
enables you to make German screenshots. Great. This works also with Japanese, Chinese or whatever language available.
