This menu serves the purpose of creating a new language set for use within Helmut4. It allows for the translation of the entire web and panel interface, enabling the utilization of the product in different languages or with terminology more familiar to the local environment.

It's important to note that Helmut4 is exclusively delivered in English. When translating the product, there are minimal considerations, except for the fact that the stream designer cannot be translated and will consistently appear in English. Some terms used in English may have counterparts in the stream designer, making it potentially challenging to support streams if these terms are presented in a different language on the frontend.

Helmut4 can only be displayed in a single language; it is not possible to show it individually for users in another language.

The language settings can be configured for all users through the preferences menu by an administrator.
