Monolingual for Mac

Download.com Staff Feb 24, 2013

With the increasing size of video and audio files, hard-drive space can be at a premium, especially on computers over two years old. Monolingual helps you free up disk space on a Mac by removing data the computer uses only when actively supporting other languages.

Available at no cost, Monolingual is a small, easy-to-run program. The software is only compatible with version 10.7 or higher of Mac OS X. It runs quickly and is supported by detailed instructions and troubleshooting information. The program walks you through the language deletion process, making it simple to use. As indicated in the troubleshooting section, the language data removed cannot be brought back without totally reinstalling the operating system. For inexperienced computer users, it would be easy to remove languages and configurations necessary for normal operation, so beware.

Monolingual performs its function well and has excellent user instructions. If you need a bit more space on your hard drive, this software could prove to be useful.

Developer's Description

Monolingual is a program for removing unnecessary language resources from Mac OS X, in order to reclaim several hundred megabytes of disk space. I don't know about you, but I use my computer in only one (human) language -- English. And I'm willing to bet that you do too, albeit perhaps not English. So why do you have a bunch of localization files for the Mac OS X operating system filling up your hard drive? Enter Monolingual -- a handy utility for reclaiming your space for more useful things... like international mp3 files, email or whatever you like.
