It is agreed that each translation team should choose it's own path
CLI translation process.

For the Hebrew team the initial problem is that while we agreed on the
solution, it couldn't be executed. We translated CLI templates in Launchpad
into English but every new release our translations were overridden.
This is why the bugs were opened in the first place.

For the solution of adding 'export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8' we concluded that
it is not something we want new users to deal with in a fresh Ubuntu
