I think you've got a selection bias here, since google isn't likely to 
index code not intended for the whole world, and thus the code you'll be 
searching through is more likely to be in english than code in general.

Perhaps searching the entire web for "class <non-ascii string>", or 
"<non-ascii string> (" or "<non-ascii string> =" would give more 
accurate results, if such a thing is even possible.
