I didn't want to resurrect a five year old topic but I'm wondering the same thing as this post

Say you d/l a program and the GUI is in a foreign language. Well, what if you could activate the LO {language overlay} which "sees" the GUI, makes an overlay copy of it, but with English words {or the user's home language}.
The LO would have to obviously be able to:

1- Get into the program to get the text & GUI info
2- Have some sort of interpetation setup
3- Place the labels correctly
4- Allow for user input via keyboard & mouse

Would something like this be possible, even perhaps if the translation was manual, and 'sticks' above another UI?
