Language Selection Dropdown Option within Settings
As apposed to needing to manually edit wp-config.php and upload via FTP. I think it would make sense to have this option right there in Settings > General with the time and date settings.
Obviously, this would be more convenient for everyone, but more manageable for novice users. I find that the majority of users/customers still in 2012, have a very difficult time setting their language.
Right now, since we don't include the languages in the main zip, it wouldn't work.
A lot of work would need to go into restructuring how those work before this could happen :/
WordPress just needs to have Dashboard > Updates prompted to update/install to the WordPress version in the selected language.
Are you positive it wouldn't be simple to trigger that in numerous other ways?
If it was that simple, we would ;)
The problem is that the language packs, like everything else in WP, are community wrangled. Check out http://blog.glotpress.org/ and http://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/
What we really need right now is a plugin that goes and gets the latest language pack and tosses it in wp-content/languages/ for you. Then you can pick.
Yeah, that's a great idea, a WP Language Pack plugin. Come to think of it, there probably also are a few language plugins available that can already set the language in wp-config.php.
