We inaugurate the FAQS line, the frequently asked questions, with a question that many on the forums propose: there is a difference between the ROMs MultiLanguage (Multi calls) and only ones Italian? Since there is indeed a lot of confusion and misinformation, let's try to make some clarity.
Let's start by identifying the three weekly weekly ROM releases that are released each week.
It is the first version that sees the light on Friday morning and is released by the official channel through the main site. This version is available for all officially supported terminals and only incorporates Chinese and English (not perfectly). ROM from this channel includes several untranslated and useful applications only in China.

The multi is released, except for problems, on Friday but it is not a rule. Includes 23 languages including Italian of course and is made for all officially supported terminals. This ROM although considered "Unofficial" is the result of the translation work of the various teams around the world and also includes some optimizations such as the removal of unnecessary Chinese apps.
The Italian Pack is usually not ready before Monday because the adaptation of the Italian to each version, to which some specific modifications must also be added, takes time. Obviously this version includes a "state of the art" translation and with specific optimizations for our country. Depending on the phone model, a ROM already translated or a ROM is provided Pack to be installed on the version Official.
At this point you are wondering: is it worth waiting Monday for the release of the Italian team?
As already mentioned, MultiLanguage is the result of the Italian team, but is based on a base very generic so that it can be applied independently on any release from the international team. But this has a price: the translation in the MultiLanguage is not complete at 100%, especially in some weeks where there are many news, the percentage of translation can go down a lot!
The speech of optimizations is a different matter. In the Italian pack the other languages are removed, moreover there are several specific improvements for Italy that make the ROM light and quick. But here we enter into "industrial secrets" that we do not know and rightly the Nexus-Lab holds for itself.
In conclusion, seven days pass between the Fridays as well as between the Mondays of the Italian version, so once the "rhythm" is taken wait for Italian Pack it's not that tiring, but it's worth it. Obviously nobody forbids you, as I do, to install the MultiLanguage on Friday and the Italian version on Monday.
