This is important, because if someone picks the wrong language by
mistake, then all the names are written in that language! If you pick
Hebrew, by mistake, then to go back to English, you'll have to decide
whether it's אנגלית‎, עברית‎ or פינית. It's not a feature, it's a bug.

... That, or the language of the project from which the respondent came.
