No, but that's only true of GUI elements. What use would it be to have the
menus in some other language when R itself (and all the help) is in

However, R is a collaborative project, so feel free to program this and
contribute as much of multi-language support as you feel helpful.  You
would probably need to add support for wide characters too.
