 Even though Google Translate is probably not the best tool for a thorough
 language research, if you translate not the whole web page but the
 "polyglot" word specifically, all of these languages can translate it just

 * [https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=id&text=polyglot Indonesian]:
 poliglot, mahir baca tulis bnayak bahasa (there's also a
 [http://polyglotindonesia.org Polyglot Indonesia] community).
 * [https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=bs&text=polyglot Bosnian]:
 poliglot, poliglotski, mnogojezi─Źni.
 * [https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=tl&text=polyglot Filipino]:
 lingguwista, taong maraming nalalamang wika.
 * [https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=pl&text=polyglot Polish]:
 poliglota, poliglotyczny.

 If you look at the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyglotism Wikipedia
 article for polyglotism], it's translated into 36 languages, so the
 concept seems pretty universal. I don't see a usability or accessibility
 issue here.

 As noted above, any team's name should be discussed with the team in
 question. Both the P2 and Slack are open for anyone with a WordPress.org
 account. The Meta team cannot make decisions on behalf of other teams, it
 can only assist with technical implementation.
