Hear is an obvious and useful one (especially for non English sites)
 
Provide translations for any text not written in the natural language of
the page
 
so if a French site quotes something in English - translate it please
fro French speakers, who have managed to learn to read French but did
not take English as a second language. -thank you
... (technique - use a title attribute..?)
 
Note: I see this all the time on Hebrew sites where there is an
incorrect assumption that if you managed to learn to read at all, then
you can read in at least two or three languages....

 

All the best
