Which Distributions Are Multilingual?


I am trying to find a list of distributions that are multilingual. By that I mean the distributions that are compatible with more than one language. This question is not about distributions that are made specifically for one country, or non-english, but distributions like Ubuntu that are compatible with several languages.

Doesn't that just depend what you put in your locale file?

# cat /etc/locale.alias
bokmal          nb_NO.ISO-8859-1
bokm�l          nb_NO.ISO-8859-1
catalan         ca_ES.ISO-8859-1
croatian        hr_HR.ISO-8859-2
czech           cs_CZ.ISO-8859-2
danish          da_DK.ISO-8859-1
dansk           da_DK.ISO-8859-1
deutsch         de_DE.ISO-8859-1
dutch           nl_NL.ISO-8859-1
eesti           et_EE.ISO-8859-1
All distros can manage different languages.
