     the same as the language in created documents.For eg. if you spend time in multilanguage

     lot of easier to install - one file for everyone.  Maybe if someone
     who uses mobile-internet to download additional 70MB makes higher
     payment, but it any other situation, using internet from any cable
     access should not be problem.--
I understand your concerns and they are valid; I think the bandwidth can be the bigger problem for users. Correctly selecting the default language, I believe, is fairly straightforward. There are two problems I see, one is available server space for storing the exe's. The second is how to make sure the proper files are downloaded and installed. If you have a separate installer for each language, someone has to produce each installer. Updates and patches would be more difficult to roll out, each installer would need updating. If you have separate downloads you now need a method to ensure the correct language pack(s) are downloaded, similar to a Linux repository. The major issue to me is time, someone has to actually do the work and maintain the release(s) or in the case of a "Windows repository" set it up and make sure the installer works correctly - I suspect it would need revision for this idea.

Also, another issue is the varying computer literacy levels of our users. Whatever method is used must not require more than minimal knowledge from the user.
