Cyber-English all the Way?

There are thousands of languages across the world, but a smile speaks them all.
Out of the 7,106 recorded living languages, only 394 or 6% of living languages are used by 94% of the world’s population while the remaining 94% of languages are used only by an average of 1 million people or less [Ethnologue]. In terms of language footprint by content, Internet World Stats estimates that there are approximately 165 languages with web presence today and only 36 of them are actively used. Wikipedia currently hosts 288 languages and Google Translate supports already 90 languages at various levels. Today, 56% of web content is in English, and together with the other top 10 mainstream languages on the internet, account for 80% of online content.
