A use case is that a search engine wants to bring together reviews and other
information about films into film-centric pages. It gathers that information
about that film from all over the web and wants to present people with reviews
in their preferred language(s). This requires it to preserve information about
the language of the reviews.

Also in this case, the film might have different titles in different languages;
the search engine would be able to link together the information provided in
different languages about the same film using pages in which there were
multiple translations of the title (see eg [1])

A perhaps more esoteric use case: translation services such as Google Translate
might look for examples where the same information about an item was given in
different languages as potential sources for improving its translation
services.
