The replies so far---for which, many thanks---are also off topic.

I want to change the language of LC "itself", i.e., the development

Its menus, such as for opening/ saving stacks, or for creating/ copying/
pasting/ deleting objects.

Its windows, such as properties, the toolbar, the script editor.

But NO localization of the script language, NOR the LC dictionary.

And NO localization of stacks themselves.

I am not asking for help with multi-lingual software development.

LC stacks, LC Windows standalones, and LC Android apps, I've created in the
past, with Japanese-only language support. And most of those stacks and
standalones were made even before LC went completely Unicode.

Hope my wording was clear enough this time.

Thank you as always.
