Actually, when I boot from live CD and I choose for example Czech on
the first boot screen, I boot to fully English environment of
KDE/GNOME. Some applications like Mozilla are translated. This is OK, I
understand CD can not contain support for all languages.
But at least YaST Live Installer should be translated to all languages
. Look at Ubuntu: it speaks English during live session, but installer
is localized. Preferably, whole YaST should be translated. It should
not be so big wasting of space...
There is also another problem: for example I'm used to Czech keyboard
layout, but even I choose Czech during boot, the KDE uses English
keyboard. This is very unpleasant especially when typing passwords. Why
should I bother with keyboard settings in KDE Control Center which will
be lost during install? The live session should use keyboard map and
locales of language selected on boot screen .

Translations of YaST Live Installer should be most important thing.
Installation from openSUSE DVD is localized to many languages so LiveCD
do also.

Guys, i´m worried it´s not possible yet. I requested it a time ago.
Take a look -
But i´d appreciate that installation from liveCD installs chosen
language without no any additional runnig YaST. Current openSUSE
status: We have to run YaST for additional fully language support after
installation E.g. Ubuntu installs full language support during
installation. So after installation you have fully localized desktop.
That means no more additional runnig synaptics for language support.
