There's a message bar that prompts the user to restart once they've changed their langpack. Currently this message is displayed in the language that will be used after restart.

We may want to include both the current language and the language that will be used after restart.

We also may want to have a "Cancel" button.

The message bar should maybe be the yellow "warning" one instead of the grey "info" version so that it is more prominent.

How would you like to format this message with both languages? We could do the same as attached image. Do you have any concerns about following that approach?

Each message should be a paragraph. The message is first displayed in the requested language (e.g. Italian) and then in the previous one (e.g. English). Instead of putting the second language in brackets, I'd like to see how it looks in italic. 

In the button, we can separate the languages with `|`

Note that Italic might be a problem with non Latin scripts.

That's a great point. 
Maybe just having them on different paragraphs is enough.
