This article proposes a new software system which better supports users who speak more than one language. A typical use case is a user who speaks English, French and German. She prefers to see local news in German, but wants to see technical software documentation in English. For content related to design and fashion, she prefers French. In existing software systems (browsers, operating systems, content management systems), the user has to express the preferred language for each piece of content manually. Existing systems only support multilingual content, but not multilingual users.
