MOSFiT can optionally translate all of its command line text into any language supported by Google translate.
MOSFiT will use a user’s
$LANG environment variable to guess the language to use, if this variable is set. To accomplish this, the user must install the
pip install googletrans
MOSFiT can be translated into one of the available languages using the
--language option. When running for the first time for a new language,
MOSFiT will pass all strings to the
googletrans package one by one, which takes a few minutes to return the translated strings.
Note that Google’s translation service is very approximate, and the translated text is only roughly equivalent to the original meaning.
