Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS – Using English language for the installation and other location and language for the keyboard

When I install Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS (or 12.10, it has the same behavior), I choose the English language for the system, but since I work with computers with a Portuguese keyboard, I need to choose the Portuguese keyboard during the setup process, so after choosing the English language, I choose Other/Europe/Portugal for the Location. With this kind of Language / Location combination, Ubuntu Server setup asks to configure manually the Locale since there is no Locale defined for the Language / Location combination entered. In this case, and since i want it to work correctly in English, I choose always en_US.UTF-8, like this:

Hope that this could be useful!
