    Description: It is impossible to use the Z39 server with languages other than English. For example, in the Z39 search results, the sublibrary description is always in English although the general interface is in a different language.

    Solution: This has been corrected. A new parameter, "connection-language", can now be defined in the Z39 base configuration file. See the Implementation Notes.
