Bug Description

Installing Ubuntu 9.04 from DVD and selecting Language->Shqip (means Albanian), it did install everything in Albanian except Firefox and OpenOfficeOrg. I had to download Albanian version of this two programs and install them.

I expected to have Albanian version of Firefiox, OOO, which do have albanian version. I understand that some programs don't have an edition on a certain language in which case the English edition is used. But in this case both Firefox and OOO have albanian editions.

OOo 3.* has no Albanian translation yet. But Firefox is translated upstream both 3.0 and 3.5.

Kjo ka më tepër lidhje me ata që përgatisin paketat për t'i vendosur në DVD apo në CD dhe problemin me Firefox që shfaqet vetëm në gjuhën angleze e kanë raportuar edhe përdorues të Ubuntu në gjuhë të tjera. Zgjidhja për këtë gjendet në Synaptics Package Manager, ku mund të shkarkoni Albanian Language Pack për Firefox. Sa për OpenOffice.Org po vazhdon puna për përkthimin e paketave të ndryshme që e përbëjnë atë edhe në gjuhën shqipe.

Translation :
This is more related to those who prepare the packages to put on DVD or CD with Firefox and the problem that appears only in English and reported the Ubuntu users in other languages. The solution to this found in Synaptics Package Manager, where you can download Albanian Language Pack for Firefox. As for OpenOffice.Org is continuing work on the translation of the various packages that comprise it in Albanian language.
