Dear Julian,

the visitor of your digital library can switch to any language included
in Greenstone. You should look to FORMAT -->TRANSLATE
TEXT-->General:collectionextra ... just add here a translation for
"about page" in 4 or more languages. When the visitor sets French
language then French text in about will appear.

Hope it helps,

Tomáš Fiala
