Change language of Evolution or Thunderbird (to Swedish)

I have installed Linux Mint 13 Mate, with swedish as the language. The translation across the system is far from complete but that's not a major problem. However, neither Evolution (preferred) or included Thunderbird is in swedish. I can't find any language settings in either one. Is there an easy way to install swedish versions or language packs?

For Thunderbird you will want to install the thunderbird-locale-sv package. For Evolution I'm not sure, but perhaps make sure you have both the language-pack-sv and language-pack-gnome-sv packages installed, as the translations may be included in that for Evolution (which is a GNOME project). Below are all the Swedish language packages I could find, perhaps some there will also interest you.
