The Time Value of Money Calculator tries to change its labels and number format to match the default language setting of your computer. The number format always changes, but if there are no translations available for the labels in your language, they will appear in English. For example, if Russian (for which there are no translations yet) is the default language of your computer, all labels will be in English but the calculator will expect numbers to be entered in the format "123 456,99". You can select the default English format for both labels and numbers from the Options menu if the mismatch is too confusing.

The labels do not "stretch" enough to accommodate ideal translations in some languages. The labels are clipped off in those cases. If the labels look odd, it is the fault of the calculator design and not the translators!

If you are fluent in English and one of the languages in the drop-down list below, please help make the calculator easier for other visitors to use by providing a new translation for your language next to each English phrase listed in the form. The translation won't appear immediately. We need time to check that nothing offensive has been submitted.
