Comment (by malthert):

 Well, if you are using logging (and are able to fix this DB issue), you
 have some IT knowledge and will be somewhat proficient in English. Thus it
 makes sense to have this error message in English.
 Even if you are not proficient in English (and therefore no IT knowledge):
 this is an issue you cannot fix yourself - therefore you open a support
 ticket with your hoster. It's much easier for them to have error messages
 in English, than in 50 languages.

 Even though this could theoretically be displayed to the user, this error
 only makes sense in English - as it's less actionable when it's
