             http://www.geometrygames.org/Kali/

  Jeff Weeks has announced that Kali 5.1 is now available for
  Windows machines. This latest version supports 12 languages:

    - Arabic
    - Chinese
    - Danish
    - English
    - French
    - German
    - Hungarian
    - Italian
    - Japanese
    - Portuguese
    - Russian
    - Spanish

  To use Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese, you might first need
  to go to

    Start : Control Panel : Regional and Language Options :
        Languages : Supplemental language support

  to enable support for East Asian and/or right-to-left
  scripts. Without such support, you'll see only the nine
  European languages.

  On Windows XP you can use all the languages.

  On Windows 98 you can use only languages in your computer's
  default language family.
