I have only Finnish locales installed ("locale -a"), so only the
selections "suomi" and "English" work from the plugin menu. The rest
show up as "deu,ger" etc, and do not work; text shows up in English
despite selecting them.
Maybe the locales that the user does not have installed on their system
should be hidden?
