9 The .blender directory holds various data files for Blender.
10 In the 2.28a release those are the .Blanguages file containing a list of
11 translations, the translations themselves and a default ttf font.
12
13 Blender checks for the presence of this directory in several locations:
14         - the current directory
15         - your home directory
16         - On OSX, the blender bundle is also checked 
17         - On Windows, the installation dir is checked.
18
19 If you get a 'File ".Blanguages" not found' warning, try to copy the .blender
20 dir to one of these locations (your home directory being recommended).
