Include translations for Firefox, etc. in the live ISO

I would like translations to be included for Firefox and other included software in the ISO when i test it live.
So that when users test the ISO live they can have a full translation experience and not have missing translations for programs like Firefox and possibly others.

Surely this would just bloat the install iso? Which language is missing?

I thought we already have the firefox language pack in the repo?

No that just shows installable packs, but is a good pointer.

Are there any disired limit for the size of the ISO files?
I would like danish (da) translation my self.
The translations for Firefox is properly big because its translated to so many languages.
But its a shame that people spend so much time translating something and then the users cant use the translations in live.
I like when all translations are included for the software that are included.
So if Firefox is included by default i would like the translations to be included also.
So the users get a good experience instead of a mixed of english and translated.

When you choose a language to be installed in Firefox, actually you are choosing all the subsets too. Likely it will take a lot of space, not to mention it would be confusing having so many languages.
