Thank you for your answer :)

But I think I haven't expressed clearly in my previous mail. I want to
focus on templates that are used in a default Ubuntu installation, the
rest can be translated later :) So if anyone can, please help me make a
list of those packages?

I am sorry for any misunderstanding caused.
