Indeed. And the result of this is that you overestimate the ability of

That is what I am trying to challenge. For end users the application
language is often a limiting factor to get to the real features. for
that very reason there is a whole world out there of Russian bible
software (ask David Haslam for more info) and a fair number of attempts
in other languages too.
