Indeed. I really hope that it isn't English, because the English
are too lazy at learning languages and that puts most of my
homeland at a massive disadvantage! For example, the state's
schools no longer teach non-English languages for all after 14
years old and still less than half of 7-11 schools teach them.
Monday is European Day of Languages. What will everyone do for it?

By the way, it might also be unjust, if neither party involved in
a dispute speaks the English of an agreement they both made with
the involvement of a third party (the original work's licensor).
If they didn't understand the agreement's wording, could they
really consent? From this discussion, it seems so, although
it should be translated early in a dispute.
