OK, I understand. I was guessing that solution would not be trivial.

Of course you are right. I think all the matter would need somewhat as
an "abstraction layer" so translated types, options, etc, would be
passed to therion in english, or so. Again, I understand this is not
trivial. At this moment, get the people learning about 50 english words
is probably easier than getting a new interface.

Date is not fixed yet, however things are moving faster than
expected. I'll need to do hard lobbying work from now. It would
be very helpful if I could send even a not-so-fully-translated, windows
binary version to some people as fast as possible. I updated the
translation script in wiki so types remain untouched, but I have no idea
about compiling those all tex, tcltk, tkimg, etc, things, in order to
get it working on windows  :(

I'm doing my first serious Therion survey now, and taking notes
for a writing. (Wookey: your starter guide is useful, thanks) I'll
post some (probably dumb) questions next week or so. I'm quite happy
with therion. It is by far the best caving survey software I tried.
Authors and contributors can be proud of it.
