Bug Description

Xubuntu 14.04.02 Live CD.

On the screen where you are offered the option to change languages, some of the languages don't have translations and default to English:
- Cymraeg
- Samegilli
- Tagalog
+ some others that I can't properly print out.

If the translation is not available, the translation should probably be removed.

Also confirming for Vivid.

However, the issue is that *some* translations exist for these languages. For example, the partitioning confirmation dialog appears to be translated for Welsh (Cymraeg). That's the reason why the languages are listed.

Most of the job here would be to complete the translations for some of these languages, something I unfortunately can't do myself.

Marking as Triaged/Medium, but I get the feeling we should rather close this bug as Invalid (ie. not a bug), since it's a matter of (sadly) imcomplete translations.

We should try to find people willing to complete these translations instead.
