This has technical reasons and historical reasons.
We wanted to used Savannah more and unify the infrastructure.
Savannah took a break after being broken into where we still needed
infrastructure. Savannah and FSFE still could need more help by
hackers with their infrastrucure.

Each list administrator can enable the installed languages for Mailman.
E.g. fsfe-de has German enabled so you can select this.
Other list administrators will have done the same I assume.

As far as I know there is no other English language sets for Mailman 
so far. (See http://www.list.org/i18n.html.)
So if you want "English (EN)" you would need to create it first.
