*Administration menu → Development → Languages*
You can install and update language packs on this page, keeping the translations of the interface up to date. This is handy if you know that changes have been made to a translation that you have, but you don't have direct server access. This automates the process of downloading the language from the `Mahara language pack site <>`_.
These languages are only for the translation of the interface. You can use any language that is supported by Unicode when you add text yourself as Mahara.
.. note::
English is not listed here as that is the default language for Mahara. You can find the languages and how much they have been translated for the Mahara interface in the `translation project <>`_.
If your desired language is not available, you can `start a translation <>`_ for it.
