Thanks to the efforts of Debian Localisation teams and Ubuntu  localisation
teams, this has become possible. The availability of language at the time of
boot will help common people to start using  Ubuntu without muh knowledge of
English. "As several graphical user interfaces and applications like Firefox
and Libreoffice that are shipped with Ubuntu are already available in local
languages and several portals providing information in local languages, this
will help people including school students and elders   to start using  the
computers in their native languages" said Arjuna Rao Chavala, a Ubuntu
Telugu localisation coordinator.
