Adding default install and UI language on to install screen would be good usability enhancement.

Even when the language of the OS is not the target language of your
application, one can assume that the person using the OS at least
understands the OS language. Everything else is a corner case.

You are absolutely wrong - I can tell that from my "local" experience - the greatest part (eldest) of Latvians has no other language knowledge than Latvian and for some part - also Russian (other languages - marginal case). As the Windows started to speak comprehensible Latvian just recently. so, I wanted to tell that people speaking "smaller" languages use graphical representation of commands - just like children do - "press this icon, then, from the third menu choose 7th line and you done!"

This, according to my experience, is "User Vulgaris".
