#37130 new enhancement

Auto-download language packs when installing manually

Themes and plugins can be downloaded from Rosetta sites (locale.wordpress.org). When they're downloaded, they are only available in English and whatever locale packages a theme/plugin author has decided to ship. They do not include language packs made available from translate.wordpress.org.

As a result, if I download a plugin from the German plugin directory and manually install it, even if it's fully translated into German and a language pack is available, I won't see the interface in German. Thus, this ticket.

On manual install, we should check for an available language pack and auto-download the language pack.
