Hi Jakob, guys,

@Jakob, thanks for that advice. OK, installed that, then did 'perl 
l10n.pl read' and 'perl l10n.pl write'.

Now I am able to go to Personal and choose 'en_GM' from the languages 

Question 1: How do I get my 'en_GB' language (currently listed just 
after 'Urdu (Pakistan) to list as 'English (United Kingdom)' and to show 
up in its alphabetically-correct position?

Question 2: How do I configure ownCloud to use this English (United 
Kingdom) language to be the default used for the site, so that it's 
strings get used in the login page?

TIA for any answers, :-)
