Hello Honza -
Thanks for this suggestion...

You want to be able to change your "interface language" (the icons  
and instructions on the screen while you are using SignPuddle 1.5)  
from one language to the next, whenever you want to?

For example, right now, if you click on the Czech flag and go to the  
Czech SignPuddle, your icons are in the Czech spoken language. But  
you would like to be able to choose to see them in French or English  

There is a way to do that right now....



Want to view the ASL SignPuddle using the Czech Interface Language?


Want to view the Czech SignPuddle using the US Interface Language?

It can be done by opening the country puddle of the interface  
language you wish to use and then clicking on any flag at the bottom  
of the screen. When you open any SignPuddle using the flag icons at  
the bottom of the screen, you are opening that SignPuddle with the  
current Interface Language.


1. Open the Czech SignPuddle (which has the Czech Interface Language)
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
3. Click on the icon for the US SignPuddle dictionary.
4. That will open the ASL SignPuddle, but the icons on the side of  
the screen will still be the Czech Interface Language.

So the first SignPuddle you open, determines the Interface Language  
you are switch SignPuddles using that Interface Language,  
click on these icons at the bottom of the screen:
