Step 1 - Language Choice

Whichever of these scenarios fits your particular situation, once you hit the enter key you should be presented with the following screen:

Language Selection Screen
The Language Selection page of the Joomla! Installation Process

You should notice that en-GB – English(United Kingdom) is selected. This is the default language used for all Joomla! Core development. Simply select your preferred language for the installation process. If your own language does not appear in the list you may consider assisting in the translation of the core for other people in the same position. Visit the Translation Forums for further details.

The language files included in the core only relate to the installation process itself and do not affect the Front-end or Back-end displays of Joomla! and by default these are only installed in en-GB . This happens simply, as to include all the translations for the core files would make the download an unmanageable beast in size. Individual languages into which Joomla! has been translated are carried on the Joomla! Code repository site. Full details of the language packs currently available can be found within the Joomla! Developer Network site in the Menu Module on the left of the page.
