Right. We struggle so much for interoperability of computing systems yet try to keep political correctness about interoperability between people. Certainly, unless some global catastrophic disruptions happen, the mankind will largely speak a single language in 100-200 years or so from now. I believe the amount of work-time needed to translate all available in English technical documentation to another language is larger than the time to learn English for all people that speak that given language. And this disproportion will only grow with time.
PS. I don't speak English natively.
