*Exactly* when did you do this? I suspect it was after the step of loading 
additional components? Before that point changing the language should work 
fine. After that point the language setting *is* changed, but you get 
English because other translations have been deleted to save memory.

You can keep all translations for the whole installation by booting with 
DEBCONF_DROP_TRANSLATIONS=0 (IIRC). See changelog for cdebconf (0.117).

That functionality is already there, but disabled because of #470258.
