Description Joshua Wulf 2007-02-27 02:32:14 UTC
Description of problem: The Welcome screen of anaconda is always in English.
There is no option to select language before this screen. In order to get to see
the Welcome screen in your native language, you have to see it in English, click
next, then select your native language, then click back.

Perhaps the language selection screen should be the first one to be displayed?
Further to this, can the languages be displayed in English and in the local
language, for example:

Spanish (Espanol)

to enable people to locate and select their native language.

There's been back and forth over this through the years.  This is why we've
moved to the welcome screen being just an image as opposed to lots of text.
