For instance, beside French, you can also have Canadian French, Belgium 
French, Switzerland French, ...

Some words are not the same or not existing, accent is different, saying 
numbers (90 is "quatre ving dix" in French but "nonente" in Belgium or 
Switzerland) aso.

Yes, valid selection. FYI Debian has ready packages for languages.
