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?
