Sebastien, this is against 12.04.1 ISO image for China. Can you verify that we have the correct ubuntu-defaults package installed and that it is pulling in the correct language packs, this should be translated at 100% for 12.04.

Confirmed, the translations and on disk and used in the live session, it seems like the ubiquity panel service is not started with the right locale there...

16:00 < stgraber> ubiquity itself updates to use the right language, but the rest of the environment can't be updated
16:00 < stgraber> I think so, because I have no idea how to solve it

A potential workaround might be to set /etc/default/locale to zh_CN through ubuntu-defaults, but in either case, it's not likely to happen for 12.04.1. Targeting to 12.04.2 for now.

"Accessibility" still not be localized

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

the accessibility menu is from gnome-settings-daemon I think, maybe similar issue for that process?

Stéphane Graber (stgraber) wrote :

The accessibility menu is built into ubiquity (gtk_ui.py), the strings are apparently translatable (looking at the .ui file).

As I mentioned by e-mail, please file a new bug specifically for this issue as it'll likely need a quite different fix, including get translators to translate the strings.
