If language is based on locale, it's only ok so long as the ability to change it is there easily... if some weird upgrade bug gives me a French locale how would I navigate the terminal to change it? I don't speak French. Also if I'm on someone else's machine.
how is this different from the problem a sighted person has if this happens? Its not on topic, but I've heard of sighted people changing the language in a terminal when they didn't know anything about the current locale. While its pretty hard with a gui I imagine, if you know you need to set $LANG $LC_* then you can manage it since you know what you need to type. Trev
