I assume there has been discussion on the topic below, but to add:

What is presented by e.g. Ubuntu installer is quite useful, for as far I 
can judge (no idea if it is true for all languages)

- Installer offers my native language
- During installation, installing/downloading full language support is 
added (and fall back to do it later, in case there is no internet 
connection at that moment)

On top of that, we can also add the choice to download install full 
Help, including extended Help tips.

Note: for distribution via CDRom, and maybe also via the distro's, full 
installation including translation and Help is most appropriate IMO. Not 
all on our planet have easy access to fast internet.
