LIP for Terminal Server?

Is it possible / a smart thing to do / to install some LIP to Terminal Server, so the users can use TS in their own language?

It is possible. Install the server in English and add the required language packs.
Publish the control panel to change the language.
But its probably more important to them to have their main app in their own langugae (i.e, Office). Of course it depends what they do on your terminal server. I assume they probably won't use the OS/desktop very much.

Great :)

Can you point me to a download and a guide how to implement it?
   - I've done a search and found an appropriate GPO, tho I don't have a clue where to download MUI +' I would like to be on the safe side with installation.

Thanks!

This could be a problem:
"The Windows XP/2000 MUI is sold only through Volume Licensing programs such as the Microsoft Open License Program (MOLP/Open), Select, and Enterprise agreement (or with a new computer as an OEM version at customer request). It is not available through retail channels."
At least for Windows 2000/2003 and XP, the MUI can't be downloaded.

So the EULA doesn't allow usage of MUI, if for example I borrow MUI from a friend?

LIP's are free to use with appropriate Windows installation.

Yes, it seems that MUI for 2003/XP is only for Select/MOLP/Enterprise Agreement customers...

LIP for Vista and 2008 is free for everyone.
