It can vary depending on what distro you are using and if you are a GUI type of person or not, but generally you can set the default language by putting the following lines into your default user's ~/.bashrc file :-

export LANG=zh_TW.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=zh_TW.UTF-8
export LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.UTF-8

save the .bashrc file, and logout/login again. If you are using KDE you can also go to the Personalization area of the KDE settings and set the default to Traditional Chinese there as well, so that all the KDE menus etc. display in Chinese.

Note : the above assumes you have "scim" installed, which is probably the best input method going around...
