FAQ 132: How do I view LiveJournal in a different language?

The third paragraph of FAQ 132 needs to be updated to reflect the switch to XColibur as default style. The last sentence of that paragraph now reads:
If you have not previously set a language while logged in, this page can also be reached by clicking on the translation icon with a speech bubble under the LiveJournal logo on all of the main LiveJournal pages.
My proposed revision (REVISED):
If you have not previously set a language, you can click on the image representing languages to reach this page. In the default (XColibur) display theme, this link appears near the top right-hand corner of the main LiveJournal pages and contains the words for various languages (starting with "English, Español, Deutsch, Français"); in the Dystopia scheme, the icon with the speech bubble appears under the LiveJournal logo at the top of the main pages.
Or should we just assume use of the default scheme, since I think you would need to set a language to set Dystopia as your preferred scheme, right? If we go that route, then just use the first sentence, stopping at the word "pages," perhaps. Consensus seems to be to provide for both styles.

Of course, the larger question is: is this sentence necessary, since we've given them the link?...I think so...but figured I'd raise the question in case others differ with me on that point.

Edited to revise the proposal in light of comments. Originally proposed text:
You can reach this page by clicking on the "Browse Options" link at the bottom of all the main LiveJournal pages if you use the default (XColibur) display scheme. If you use the Dystopia scheme, you can click on the translation icon with a speech bubble under the LiveJournal logo on all of the main LiveJournal pages.
