Technically, I think this should be on blfs-support - but it is
straightforward so I'll answer it here.

I do not install other languages (so I _might_) be missing something
about how to make _multiple_ langauges work, but common languages -
in my case 'English (British)' instead of 'English (US)' - for the
current version are a download :


and they do need to be updated for new versions (for me, that
happens automatically on a new release - might not happen if people
run nightly or whatever.

Thanks for asking - I had not realised that I apparently turned off
the language pack on this machine, probably when I tried out a beta
