Very interesting, Jimmy. Actually ATW has just started the Automatic Language Mapping [fastsearch.com]:
AlltheWeb now determines the country from which a user’s query is originating and provides relevant results in the user’s local language as well as in English. ... Although the local language and English are provided as the default languages, users will still be able to override the default language by selecting from the 49 languages available through AlltheWeb’s customized settings.
