Language module:
Ariadne provides a language module with which you can translate the user interface into your own language (English standard available).

Remark: Ariadne supports the processing of race and scoring data. Start and finish events are received from a timing device (i.e. ALGE Timy). The optical start and finish lines and the controlling equipment of these are not part of the Ariadne system. Ariadne does provide interfaces for the ALGE Timy timing device and the Gennepermolen start/finish line controlling devices.
