My example was bad, I came confused about what is used in HK.

However, even if my example is bad, everything should work OK for
HK. The correct example is:

If choosing Traditional, then Hong-Kong, you will end up with

Thus, the installation will continue in zh_TW if it exists.

Currently, however, only zh_CN really exists, thanks to Carlos

replace zh_TW when these do not exist.

Side effect of this thread : we currently speak theoretically, as
zh_TW translations are currently nearly vaporware.
