Bug description:
  I am a Dutch user. However, for virtually any technical documentation,
  English is the lingua franca on the web. It is an incredible nuisance
  to look up technical details in Dutch. I appreciate the effort to make
  help.ubuntu.com accessible in all languages, however it is a TERRIBLE
  idea (and quite frankly, since the content is available in English,
  but I can't access it, I classify it as a bug) to prevent people from
  changing the language they read it in.

  Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  I expect to be able to read online help files in English.
  Instead, I am forced to read them in Dutch.
