^ yes. Technically after install without network you should get a
light bulb icon in your tray that allows you to install the missing
localization at a convenient time (... when you have internet access).
However that has not been working for me last I tried, so that is
pending investigation.

However as I keep saying every time the topic comes up... ultimately
this must be handled inside libmuon/libqapt as only that allows a
non-intrusive way to get a 100% localization without bugging the user.
In this particular case it would be a matter of (for example) checking
localization completeness along with the regular update checks, so
that after a non-network install you'll get the muon updater waiting
to install huspell and whatnot.
But I have no details on muon integration so for the time being we'll
have to find out why the light bulb is not working.
