Both and. I think the debian installer is a text based installer that is 
only used in certain cases like the server and alternate version. The 
desktop installer are the packages named ubiquity-*.

On another note, just as with GNOME, it is always better to translate 
upstream, so your translations will benefit all the other debian based 
distros as well. So if you want to translate the debian installer, you 
should do it at the debian project. Alternatively, if you would like to 
use lp translations for it, you can send the file to the debian projects
