Right, but this is an unrelated change. It has nothing to do with the
Launchpad translation infrastructure.

It's about installing the right language support packages for the
packages and languages that you install.

Examples are dictionaries, fonts, input methods, libreoffice-l10n-
(if you have LO installed), language-pack-gnome- (if you have a gnome
application installed).
