May I suggest that the first screen for the installer is simply a language
selector (such as the pidgin installer, and many others) so that the
installer itself runs in the user's language

The installer itself should be as small as possible (it makes no sense that
27 dictionaries and 56 language packs are included in the smallest installer
for Windows, the multi) and the user can select from the list which language
modules to add (such as Abiword does) and download them during install.

Obviously the download page should have the Installer and links to the whole
list of language packs available (such as Abiword has for the dictionaries)
for those who

However there are two more points:

1) The language pack should include translation for the interface as well as
dictionaries, spelling, etc as MS Office currently does with it's MUI Packs

2) The More Dictionaries Online must link to a nice page like this
and not like this
(this is probably a Beta problem)
