Internationalization

If you installed digiKam using your Linux distribution package, language files should
be included with it and you can run digiKam in any supported language.

You can change the default language by using Help Menu in digiKam.

If you don't find the required language in it, you can add a language by
installing that particular language pack. For example, in debian based distros,
if you want to add "french" language, you can do it by following:

# sudo apt-get install language-pack-kde-fr-base
# sudo apt-get install language-pack-kde-fr

Note: AppImage, Windows and MacOS bundles include already all translation files.
