And keeping in mind that 100 is not even close to the number of identified living languages. But it likely is close to what one might consider a viable market.
If you cover 100 languages, you are bound to also run into a lot of cultural aspects that is not language specific or based.

20 years ago, 'everyone' wanted to collect the entire internet in their databases. Archive.org is one of the (few) survivors of that craze. I was in it, and went to an international conference. Access control to the collected information was an essential issue, and one of the speakers told that he had been in negotiations with delegate from US native groups about how to protect information that should be available only to males, or only to females. Also, some information should be available only during the harvesting season, other information only during the seeding season. The limits of either of course depended on the kind of crop.

Needless to say, the access control of the system presented by the speaker did not have sufficient provisions for these demands. He presented it as an unsolved issue. If we simply state "We can't honor such cultural restrictions - The whole world must simply adapt to our culture, accept our freedoms (and most certainly respect all our taboos)!", then we are cultural imperialists as bad as in the era of colonization.

And we are.
