NetHack's text output is in English. Although the program's structure does not easily lend itself to localization (since morphological features of English are hard-wired into the source code on all levels), several localization projects currently exist.

Chinese Edit

On January 28th 2009 a Chinese translation called nethack-cn was begun on Google Code.

German Edit

Tony Crawford and Karl Breuer have completed a German localized version called NetzHack (note the 'z'), which runs on Linux, *BSD, and OS X (console and X11), and on Win32 (console and Windows graphics). Source and binaries available here.

A different German translation attempt by Patric Mueller called NetHack-De was released as a playable, although incomplete, alpha release on 11 October 2007. The release includes source code and TTY binaries for Linux and Win32.
