Bug Description

Hi. My native language is Dutch, I live in the Netherlands, but when I get the LibreOffice packages from Ubuntu Linux (Snap), I can choose from only 15 interface languages, and Dutch is not one of them. Even though Dutch is available as interface language on the generic LibreOffice that can be downloaded from the LibreOffice website, but that isn’t automatically updated. For Dutch people who aren’t very good at English, or are good at it but still want the Dutch interface language, this is a bit of a problem, especially because it isn’t at all obvious how you can download & install a separate language pack. This topic in Ask LibreOffice is about the same problem (warning: text in Dutch): https://ask.libreoffice.org/t/kan-de-user-interface-taal-niet-veranderen/73301/5 Can this be fixed?

Currently on: Version: 7.2.5.2.0+ / LibreOffice Community Build ID: 711f8d38e9451cd2fd39b6963d2a3fc166f04cb1 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3 Locale: nl-NL (nl_NL.UTF-8); UI: en-US Calc: threaded

This is only an issue for me because Ubuntu now ships LibreOffice as snap pack by default. I can, of course, download the full version from the LibreOffice website, including language packs for any interface languages that I want, and install it, but I'd have to repeat that for every upgrade of LO. For many people, and for me, that's a bit much.

There is no need for that; LibreOffice is in the Debian (and Ubuntu) archives and will remain there

That may be, but how many inexperienced users of Linux know that when the Software library offers only the snap packs for some app, you can still also get the normal ones?
