What are those new language packages?

since the latest update,i get a ‘Manjaro settings manager’ notification about available new language packages;
what is their purpose?why would i need them?


E.g.: firefox-i18n is the language pack for firefox.
Without this pack, you can´t read any drop down menu.

but i can read those fine,and i don’t see it is installed in my language packs.

what i mean is that all these packs i mentioned above,are not installed in my system,just newly suggested as available;
but until now everything worked fine for me without them.

I recall using hyphen to well… hyphen text for example inkscape textboxes, and hunspell to activate spell checker in libre office.

For firefox seems also for enabling spellcheck.

maybe all those packs,are updates for packs i already have installed but don’t show as explicitly installed in my language packages ?

If updates are available, then the new version of the language pack is installed - like updates for the system.

that means that these a newly suggested language packs that i don’t have installed.
i think I’ll just uncheck them since I’ve done fine without them until now.
