Translations

The main Classic Shell package includes translations in 35 languages for things like the toolbar labels, the Explorer UI and the start menu items.
By default things like the settings UI, help files and the installer are only in English. Thanks to some helpful users, those areas of Classic Shell have been translated to other languages.
