Re: Jsword 1.6 in French???
That is not supposed to happen. I tried to be careful in the upgrade that it would use your computer's Locale to determine which Bible book names to use.

There are two files that participate in determining the language of BibleDesktop/JSword:
desktop.properties
and
org.crosswire.common.util.Translations.properties

To find these files, use your computer's search facility. (The location depends on whether you are on a Mac, Windows or Linux)

The first holds all the options of the program and the second holds which language you have chosen the program to display in.

Delete the ....Translations.properties and you should be back in business.

If that doesn't work, try deleting desktop.properties and then re-doing your preferences/options.

Within the next year I hope to have the program translated into French. We don't yet have volunteers.
