1. The GUI translations are stored in JSON files. Which content is determined
by the Vue i18n Plugin. 

2. The language preference will be stored in local storage, so it will persist
for as long as the user doesn't change the language or clear their browser's
local storage. The question is whether the user should have to log out if they
want to change their preference.
