In OpenMRS just like any other legacy system, the text displayed to the user can be in varying languages as specified by the user but currently all the text on the pages that are rendered when installing the OpenMRS web application or running the database updater isn't translated to the supported languages except english. If the application is to be installed well, the user should be able to provide the right responses to all the prompts of the installation wizard and this can prove to be a problem if they can't understand well what the prompts are asking for. Therefore, this project is aimed at addressing the possible language barrier.
