Q.  How can I save some diskspace?

A.  You can delete the support for languages you don't use.

For example, if you can not read Chinese search for all files/folders
that have the word "cz" (the 2 letter code for Chinese) in them:

find / -name \*cz\* -print | grep -w cz
you'll find quite a few. Of course, you should check what are you deleting before you do.
