MacMahon 3.5 Documentation
MacMahon supports locale languages:
The language will be choosen automatically if you envoke MacMahon on a System with a matching locale. If you want to use a different language inside MacMahon than you use as locale on your system, you can start MacMahon with the parameter "-Duser.language=xx" with "xx" matching the language code you would like to use (see above).
Full example command line of calling MacMahon using a specific language:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" -ea -Duser.language=it -jar "C:/MacMahon/macmahon-3.5.jar"
(You may need to adjust the path to Java and the path to MacMahon.)
