Is it possible to change the language of the software ?

As a PC user of Scrivener 1 I’m now on MAC OS on Scrivener 2.
I know on the PC version it’s possible to change the language of the software, but I can’t find it on Scrivener 2.

I thought from the info on this page that Scrivener is only available in English.

Any chance of getting pigfender’s Sci-Fi translation moved over? It’s the only thing I miss from WinScriv but oh, do I miss it!

I’m willing to bribe with kittens O:)
