Are the other interfaces (Dutch, German, Czech...) actually still working?

AFAIR I tried the German one in the beginning (MkII) but gave up since all the documentation is in English, and nobody could help you with anything but English and Dutch.

WRT your musings (“What’s in a name“): translated interfaces look funny, and I guess they make only sense in a very limited environment. E.g. Marei’s LaTeX3 system I’m working with uses German commands, but it’s focused on technical documentation for one company, and we’re not supposed to use general LaTeX commands.

In my German book I’ll only show the English interface, otherwise I’d need to write even more...

@Garulfo: Do you have a special use case in mind, or do you do this for fun?

Best, Hraban
