Standardizing on a single language ensures that everyone can read the comments in a single, consistent language.
That was precisely my point. But "language" doesn't stop at the broad category "English" or "French", there are variations thereof, and that's why there can be more precise recommendations to ensure standardizing on a common variant of (for example) "English".
Let's say someone write Python comments or documentation in "William Faulkner English" or "James Joyce English". It's gonna be very difficult to read for people like me.
