David, I have quite a few languages installed, and don't see the
behavior. Can you please mention an example language where this applies?

  Use a more human name for languages

Status in language-selector package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: language-selector

  Currently language-selector shows the translations of language names
  from iso-codes in the following format:

    language; other names (country)

  I think it would make the entries a lot more readable if the "other
  names" part on the language name were dropped, i.e. the part after the
  semicolon. This would also add the benefit that the language selector
  of the application would be consistent with the language selector from

  With this proposal languages would be shown as:

      language (country)

  Also note that the Launchpad UI does not generally use the other names
  for a language: https://translations.launchpad.net/+languages
