This page displays language messages for English language as well as for languages whose encoding coincides with the current page encoding. The current page encoding depends on the current language which you can change by clicking the appropriate button in the administration toolbar.

An encoding can be assigned to a language on the Edit language page (Settings -> System settings -> Interface languages), which can be opened by selecting Modify in the Action menu of the required language.

You can edit language messages of the displayed languages, and delete messages of all languages by clicking Delete.
