Right, they are completely separate. Thanks!

I now got all parts working, adding the following to my semiautomated script:

sed -i '6i loadfont /boot/grub/fonts/unicode.pf2' boot/grub/grub.cfg
sed -i '7i set locale_dir=$prefix/locale' boot/grub/grub.cfg
sed -i '8i set lang=fi_FI' boot/grub/grub.cfg
sed -i '9i insmod gettext' boot/grub/grub.cfg
sed -i 's%splash%splash locale=fi_FI console-setup/layoutcode=fi%'
sed -i 's/Try Ubuntu without installing/Kokeile Ubuntua asentamatta/'
sed -i 's/Install Ubuntu/Asenna Ubuntu/' boot/grub/grub.cfg
sed -i 's/OEM install (for manufacturers)/OEM-asennus
(laitevalmistajille)/' boot/grub/grub.cfg
sed -i 's/Check disc for defects/Tarkista asennusmedian eheys/'
mkdir -p boot/grub/locale/
mkdir -p boot/grub/fonts/
cp -a /boot/grub/locale/ boot/grub/locale/
cp -a /boot/grub/fonts/unicode.pf2 boot/grub/fonts/

So this includes the GRUB UI, the entries in GRUB (since they are
hardcoded) and the language + keyboard settings of the live/install
session. Naturally doing this before the md5sum.txt is recreated.

I think I'll put a 14.04.3a out or something, as UEFI is becoming more
and more popular.
