It's explained in the wiki page I mentioned in my other answer.

No. Gambas relies on the glibc localisation system.

Yes, because the glibc requires the language package to be installed so
that the corresponding '*.po' files can be used.
Anyway, if you need to display messages in a specific language, it's
logical to need the system language support package, because you usually
deals with numbers and dates in the same language.
