hi, vector linuxers and support team,
I'm a newbie here. I'd like to know if the vector distro may install the operator system into the brazilian portuguese language? If not how do I shift to the one? best regards.

Hi kuruya. Currently the installer is available in English language. Though, you can change the system language once installed. To do that you have to edit the /etc/profile.d/ file and replace en_US by pt_BR.
Keep in mind the translations depends on the applications and some of them are better than another ones. Personally I find KDE doing the better job on this, and I install it on my friend's computers when they don't want to deal with English. They usually are Spanish speakers (I am from your neighborhood ;)
