What languages does IntelliJ IDEA's UI support?

What languages does IntelliJ IDEA's UI support?  For instance, is there a French version of IDEA where the UI is completely localized?  If so, can you please point me somewhere where JetBrains specifies which languages are supported.   Thanks.

Hello Scott,

I have crossed your posting by accident and can not answer your question, but I really recommend to learn and use Idea in english. For software development it is recommended to get known to an all common language base. I understand this might be hard for french people. ;-)

Hello Scott,

At the moment we do not provide any localized versions of IntelliJ IDEA,
and do not plan to. Interested people can contribute translations for the
IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition open-source project.

Thanks, Dmitry.  Without looking for the property bundles (or whatever) is IDEA internationalized?  In other words, is the work to provide, say, a French version limited to just translating the English property file[s] to French?  Are you (or anyone reading this forum) aware of anyone who has done this yet?

Ok, looking a bit more into the source (xena branch) it appears IDEA is i18n ready.  At a bare minimum the platform-resources-en and resources-en modules need to be translated... unless I'm missing something.  Right?

Hi Scott,

That's right. Though many plugins have their own bundles (e.g. ant, groovy etc). You can check that by 'com.intellij.CommonBundle' usages.
