They can't. So maybe we don't need any translations at all.

We don't ship any as official releases. We used to run gdm with a
timeout on live images expressly so people could pick a non-English
language before logging in. Then gdm lost the ability to set language
and so there was no way to do it any more.
We may bring the language selection back for f18, in a different form -
the idea is to run this new 'try-or-install?' window before the actual
liveuser session gets started. Then we can select the language there.
