What i personally would have preferred is to keep the servers as they are and simply include the possibility of changing the language in a server.
Say for example i'm playing on a french server and i don't speak french, there should be an option in the settings which allows me to switch the language displayed from French to whatever language i want (or at the very least, the most spoken languages + languages in the region).
And i know the Google translate does it automatically but believe me, google translate does a horrific job. The translations are usually not accurate enough, there's a time delay where your browser lags whilst waiting for the translation (imagine having a ping on whatever action you do), some things don't get translated at all (If you open a menu and you don't refresh the page, a small example would be opening the task menu for example).
Other problems include completely bugging interfaces such as "Send Troops".
Just give us the option of changing languages in the settings please
