Starting v4.5.5, you can choose any language from the preferences.

But the configuration below may be required to define some input format for date for example.


* For microsoft windows:
GTK+ inspect some environment variable like LANG, so you may be set a such variable under windows.
how to for win xp:
how to for 8/10:

for example set 'pt' value for a system setup to pt-BR.

* for linux, you can launch via a console:
for example in fench : LANGUAGE='fr_FR:fr' ./src/homebank
or in russian: LANGUAGE='ru' ./src/homebank
