Bugs not reported in English

A bit ago[1] there was a discussion regarding how to handle bug reports
in a foreign, non-English, language.  This was discussed in some detail
at UDS for Natty and it was decided that the best way to currently deal
with these bug reports is to convert them into a question in Launchpad.

Converting them to a question allows us to keep the information in the
bug report and specify the language that the question / bug is written
in.  The steps for doing this follow:

1) Click "Convert to a question"
2) Add a comment regarding the bug not being reported in English
3) Click "Convert this Bug into a Question"
4) Click the link to the newly created question on the bug report
5) Under Question information click the edit icon next to English
6) Choose the right language (hopefully a word or two looks familiar!)

To make this process easier I'm looking at being able to set the
language in the convert to question page. (Step 2)
