Hi,

I downloaded iso dvd images using jigdo then mounted in loop to keep
updated my system with Wheezy 7.1 amd64 iso images, my sources.list:

# egrep -v "^#" /etc/apt/sources.list
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-1/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-2/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-3/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-4/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-5/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-6/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-7/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-8/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-9/ wheezy main contrib
deb file:/media/sdb1/wheezy/dvd-10/ wheezy main contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib


They are directories mount points to each iso image. I added
20language file to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ directory in order to have
english translation when descriptions are shown:

# cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20language
Acquire::Languages "en";

# aptitude update

When I show details of a package with apt-cache command I got a short
description of the searched package. It seems that english translation
files aren't merged into /var/lib/apt/lists/ directory:

# apt-cache show hello
Package: hello
Version: 2.8-2
Installed-Size: 553
Maintainer: Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>
Architecture: amd64
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4), dpkg (>= 1.15.4) | install-info
Description: The classic greeting, and a good example
Homepage: http://www.gnu.org/software/hello/
Description-md5: b7df6fe7ffb325083a3a60819a7df548
Tag: devel::examples, devel::packaging, implemented-in::c,
 interface::commandline, role::program, scope::utility, suite::debian,
 suite::gnu
Section: devel
Priority: optional
Filename: pool/main/h/hello/hello_2.8-2_amd64.deb
...

Please any help that it fix this behavior should be really
appreciated. Thank in advance.

Regards.
