The current Labdoo images [De,Es,En,Fr] include installed as only Operative System (and application menus) language only their own (so the Spanish image only includes the spanish language, the french one french and so on....) {this is not totally true, all of them include also German, I guess because Ralf is creating them using his own language}

I was checking, and each additional language installed takes around 150 Mb, wich is not too much, and in some situations could make a huge difference.

Having different languages installed, allows the user to change the language the complete operative system will work on with during that session, and in some cases (refugee camps, multi-cultural schools...) could be of great help.

My proposal would be to have at least those 4 languages [De,Es,En,Fr] installed in EVERY image.

Please understand that I am not talking about the content, but only the language the application menus and operative system. ..installing additional content for every language would of course take much much much space (not more effort, since you know, the autodeploy script automatically deploys the content in as many languages as you want...but this is another story :)) )

What do you think?
Is there any other content you could think about?

Thank you so much Javier,

I love the idea of preloading laptops with 4 most popular languages and not include the extra contents. It will be extremely helpful since we no longer pre-install local language for our edoovillages.

Hi Javier,

good suggestion and easy to implement. Should any further language be installed? I will add all language, you will request here, to all images for cloning. This may last a while, as the image will be updated every few months on the FTP server.

Thank you
Ralf, (Germany)

Hi Javier,

It would be so helpful! We have here in Barcelona a project that we need exactly that.
Thank you,
