+Do change to a certain LOCALE (if the system doesn't do it for you or
+for exploring other languages), do the following steps:
+<div class="code"><pre>
+# 1. Define/check language settings:
+   echo $LANG
+   echo $LANGUAGE
+   echo $LC_CTYPE
+# 2. Change it (example for to Japanese):
+# 2.a) bash shell:
+       export LANG=ja_JP
+       export LANGUAGE=ja_JP
+       export LC_CTYPE=ja_JP
+# 2.b) (t)csh shell:
+       setenv LANG ja_JP
+       setenv LANGUAGE ja_JP
+       setenv LC_CTYPE ja_JP
+Now launch GRASS 6 in this terminal. If you launch it from an icon,
+you have to change the LOCALE in the computer setup program instead.
