@Gunnar: Indeed, thank you for the tip. From now on whenever I go to help.ubuntu.com and realize that I can't read the text because of the bad grammar mixed with English I go to Menu -> Settings -> (scroll to the bottom) -> Show advanced settings... -> (scroll down to Languages) -> Language and input settings... -> Drag and drop 'English' to the top. Then when I'm done I set it back to my preferred language by: Menu -> Settings -> (scroll to the bottom) -> Show advanced settings... -> (scroll down to Languages) -> Language and input settings... -> Drag and drop 'My preferred language' to the top. Rather tedious compared to say having a discrete drop-down menu at the bottom of the site allowing you to choose a language that is remembered until I clear browser data. Alas, it's not forced in the sense that it can't be changed, if your browser allows you to go change settings 7 actions away. But it's not very user friendly.

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.
