Here's another multi-language use case.

I'm in Belgium and I get a lot of channels from neighbouring countries 
in multiple languages. Even on our domestic channels we get programming 
in the original language (e.g. Hollywood movies or BBC content in 
English, French crime drama such as Maigret in French, etc) with Dutch 
subtitles. The metadata titles and subtitles are also announced in their 
original language.

The principal language in my household is English, so that is the 
language I run the frontend in.

Cheers, Jan
