Once you install avast!, you can easily add new languages and switch between them - so, you can install both and compare.

Of course, if you find any mistakes, you are welcome to send us your suggestions/fixes ;)

Hi Antigen,

I cannot comment on the quality of the Italian version, you should ask our friend Kamulko. He is an Italian, and I do not know if he uses the English or the Italian version. I use the Dutch version of AVAST and I must say I am fully satisfied.
Four months now on this system and running without a hick-up.
I just wanted to mention this. Thank you AVAST!!!

All the best from,

polonus

I have used the English version and sometimes the italian, but in some case I see some little "divergence" with the correct terminology. But all is clear :D I prefer english version because is more difficult to see some error in translation... and if a people has tech problem+translation erroe= catastrofic result!  ;D
I like very much the voice of Avast :D

Antigen, if you'd be interested, you can record the Italian version of the sounds (to WAV files) and we can include them into the next version. ;)

Interesting.... but I prefer a "woman" voice  ;D
Virus detected (man voice)----------> ??? ::)  :-X :-\
Virus detected (woman voice)------->  :o

The result is the same, but is not very alarming :D

How do you say "Warning! There is a virus on your computer!" in Italian?
