Comment (by malthert):

 >Democratize publishing also means having a fully translated interface.

 Which we don't have. All Mysql, PHP,... errors WP encounters are in
 English. And usually those are by far the majority of errors. For every 1
 WP error (doing_it_wrong,...) we see in our or our customers logs, we see
 about 800 unique JS & PHP errors.
 Would be interesting to get input on this from the big WP hosting

 Additionally, with more pages being multilingual (thanks to AI
 translation, WPML,... and the plans of WP to add multilingual content in
 the future), it means that the error can often be in a language the
 developer doesn't even understand.

 What would convinve you? Have you worked with anybody who isn't native
 English speaking and uses WP? What's their opinion on it?
