When you use the ColorChooser objekt in Java, the fields are in english, how do you change the text in eg. the label "Recent" or the text that says "Sample text"? Can it be done in generel for JComponents?

All these values contains UIManager.
"ColorChooser.swatchesRecentText" = "Recent :"
ColorChooser.sampleText" = "Sample Text"

You can change it :
UIManager.put("ColorChooser.swatchesRecentText", "TEST");
