Or because they are an overseas student from Georgia at a university that
is happy to make money from such students, but doesn't provide support
for their language on their computer facilities (based on a real life
example in one of the recently formed London universities, but with
Chinese rather than Georgian).

Or because they are studying the language in evening classes, are allowed
to access the web for personal use from the office, but not to change
the machine configuration.

Less valid, but still true in real life:  because they are living in
a culture in which another script is dominant and normally use that
script in their web browsing, but are taking an interest in their
mother tongue (and particularly if the site is intended to encourage
such an interest).  (I think this happens anomously in India, where
English is the language of computing.)
