As a maintainer of several applications, I want to know about 
improvements/regressions of all functions in those applications.  Thus, 
I ask those who use the products I maintain to provide details 'What 
Works' and 'What Does Not Work' and these must be, for the present time, 
in English.  Sorry, but English is the "Universal" language.  The boxes, 
for now, should stay.

There are many 'drop down' menus that it would be nice to input Hebrew 
and have English populate them.  Would this be a good idea?
