It's all fine and dandy to dismiss non-english speakers, but given how anglo-saxon countries (and the US-centric computer industry) resist the metric system most of the world uses that strikes me as a rather hypocritical stance.
Localisation requirements are a fact of life. Have been since biblic times. It's sheer hubris to expect they'll be solved by switching to a single language when none of the various empires in history managed to do it.
