    Default language for a user may be set to there native language and not make sense so may switch to English

    It will be always default English. If you give it a try all it does is open a google translation page.

    Perhaps so if you translate a post to German, for example, and then close the original forum window you can translate posts back to English without having to open a new window and type in the forum address again?

    Could it be that so much of what is posted here is not recognisably English so there was a hope it could be automagically tidied up :-)

    It may be useful, I dont see any harm in having it and you never know we may get a post in another language.
