    locale
  2. you can choose any of following packages to be installed freshly (if not already installed) and check if the current language translations of that package is searched and installed automatically. For example:
    yum install eclipse-platform
    yum install calligra-core
    yum install libreoffice-core
    yum install gnome-getting-started-docs
    yum install gimp-help
    yum install man-pages
    yum install gcompris


B] Following steps are to test langpacks yum plugin by using yum commands

1) To list the already installed language support, run the following command
yum langlist
2) To check if any language support is available for your language, run the following command
yum langavailable <locale_code>/<languagename>
3) To list what packages will get installed for any language, run the following command
yum langinfo <locale_code>/<languagename>
4) To add new language support, run the following command
yum langinstall <locale_code>/<languagename>
5) To remove installed language support, run the following command
yum langremove <locale_code>/<languagename>


Note.png
Changing language does not affect up-to-date applications
If you change your current language, yum will download relevant language packs only for newly installed packages. If the application is already up-to-date, changing your language won't download new language packs - that's expected.
