There are many reasons for non english speakers to use english.
Litterature (or traffic on a list) may be much more abundant in english as in 
most other language. I also found out it is more difficult for me to select 
good cue words for a Google search in french (my native language) as it is in 
english.

The fact that many people have such a bad mastery of their native language (be 
it english or another tongue) is quite frightening, but it is generally not 
the main impediment for the understanding of the message. A list should put 
more energy correcting other points, i.e. meaningful subject (title), precise 
description of the problem and so on...
