Changing your Language/Locale on Android 2.2

My wife's phone's language was set to portuguese, when installing a new keyboard I accidentally switched the language settings to english.

I was very surprised to see that I couldn't revert, the only languages available were: German, Italian, English and Turkish.

I'm not sure where this information is coming from, but when she first started the phone it had a portuguese (although we were in Germany) and we had the option to choose portuguese in the installation language. So maybe the options are retrieved from within the card.

I was about to replace the card by another just to change the locale, but instead found this great app: MoreLocale 2

It unblocked a long list of options, including Portuguese from Portugal.
