Yes, I think so, keyboard layout or scim will allow you to switch language in use
--there is also the international edition, which has more language translation support

UFW is already running in Linux mint (that is a software firewall), and already protects your OS, additionally if you connect to the Internet via an ISP, their router also has a firewall protection; just don't make the mistake of paying for extra protection services from them, they already have to provide them just to protect themselves, and suggesting you should be paying for that type of protection is simply advertising puffery..
In terminal, check

Security hole, first note
Remote: NoMeaning it is not a remote exploit, so it can't be delivered via the Internet or external connections, only by a logged in user at your desktop..
Therefore unless you are really worried about who gets to use your computer and their skill/interest level vis-a-vis security exploits: nothing to be concerned about
--and usually these kinds of security "oops" get fixed fairly quickly with newer kernels or patches for those that need them..
thx but i thought that german wouldnt be a problem. id like to know if i can use german on the OS (linux mint) and firefox (which i suppose is build in?) in english.
