The Abacus Table Ordering app can be used in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.

You can add multiple languages to your products so customers using the app in Chinese, for example, will see the product names and descriptions in Chinese.

Note: the docket will still print out in its original language (i.e. English, if your original product names are in English).
