Firstly you should consider what language packs are actually available.

I can't seem to give exact link but:

1) Go to
2) Click "View all languages"
3) Click Status header to sort by status

There are a few considerations:
* do not duplicate languages (e.g. all the sub-different English
* prefer bigger in size

Looks like we have:
(skip English UK)
* Spanish
(skip English AU)
* Brazilian Portuguese
* German
(skip Bosnian, not a top 100 spoken language)
* French
* Russian

... or something like that, e.g. a mixture metric between available
translations of the live-CD apps & biased list of number of native speakers

ps. however you come up with these languages make sure that russian &
french are included ;-)
