3.4.  Localized language name

The localechooser entry will show both the English official name of the language as well as its translated name.

The language coordinator must provide the translation of the new language name (with an initial capital letter if capital letters make sense in this language) and send it to the Debian Installer i18n coordinators as a single UTF-8 file. UTF-8 is mandatory here. For instance, the French translator will send a file containing the single word: Français.

For this step to be considered complete, the new name must be recorded in the appropriate place in the localechooser package.

The Debian Installer i18n coordinators will record this information in the supported languages list by changing the nlp_step field value to language_name.
