        Typical ameritard. If you're too dumb to learn a second language, why normalgays, who are even dumber than you, should?

    not only that, localizations are almost always inferior with some ambiguity introduced and much harder to google for troubleshooting and walktrhough advice if you have trouble navigating their crappily designed convoluted gui
    Only disadvantage of setting your system to english is that you get their moronic date format too

      At least on Windows, you can set the time format independent of the language. I use 24-hour time with YYYY/M/DD format on both my Windows PC and Android phone. I don't have my primary system languages in English, but it works either way.

    Amerimutts are too stupid to do it to begin with, so translations are typically done by foreigners.
    In other words, not your problem, /b/ro.
    But here you waste a thread b***hing about something that's of no concern to you, Jamal.

    Compare translation software of today with translation software of 10 years ago, the difference is practically incomparable
    Hell, compare it with even 5 years ago
    and it is just going to keep improving
    20 years ago it was a pipe dream to have software advanced enough to translate languages into something remotely comprehensible without massive effort by human oversight to manually translate by hand still
    In 10 years translation software will be so commonplace the profession of translators will practically be non-existent except for Luddite consumers who have an appreciation for the 'old fashioned way'

    Why not indian, chinese or spanish? You know.. the majority of people.

      There is no language called 'Indian'. India is a continent pretending to be a country and as such as 100s of languages in their own, sometime not even originating from the same language family.
      Even so called 'Hindi' is an artificial group and mostly an artificially propped up language for political reasons, for example, the Bhojpuri 'Hindi dialect' is much more linguistically closer to Bengali speak in Eastern India and Bangladesh than the 'Hindi' spoken in Northern India which much closer to Urdu and Punjabi spoken in Pakistan(The entire reason why Bangladesh decided to separate from Pakistan was because they decided to enforce Urdu in the whole country and Bangladeshis found it hard to speak and learn another foreign language).
      Same with Chinese, its a language family pretending to be a single language and these various distinct 'dialects' that are as different as French and Italian are, are considered a single language. The only reason they are considered a 'single' language is because of the kanji based writing system that makes it easier to represent it in writing in uniform manner. So two 'chinese' speakers from two different areas can write letters to each other but can't talk to each other.
      Most Spanish speakers are first tongue speakers. Only English has any significant number of second tongue speakers.
