Is there anyway to translate install shield messages and windows?

My install shield is in English and I need the end install program to show all messages in portuguese.

If this canot be done in install shield that ships with delphi, any other link to FREE installer as good as install shield that auto copies and install BDE files are welcome

Hi VSF,

AFAIK InstallShield supports a lot of languages, portuguese language supported too. Take a look:

http://www.installshield.com/iswi/langpack/default.asp
http://www.installshield.com/iswi/langpack/supported.asp

and should be no problem to force it to deploy BDE files.

I was reading Install Shield Limited Edition's Readme file that ships with Delphi 5, and it seams like it does not suport multlanguage... is that right?!
I have a legal copy of D5 and need to deploy my app in a portuguese autoinstall! But the language packs are only for InstallShield Professional - Windows Installer Edition Language Pack . Is there any way to easely hack install shield and change at least some messages?!?!
Is there any other FREE solution for my problem?

Thanks!

Thanks u all!
I'm not buying Install Shield's version, so I guess the points go to drcspy.

Thanks any way!
