I was wondering about the implications that would arise from this. I've read that Hindu is an up and coming program language, and that there is a lot of programming done in Russian in Eastern Europe due to the Soviet isolation, but I'd imagine that for the most part English is the dominant language, and the most complicated software to write would be written in English.
By implications I mean stuff such as National Security, Military Applications, and Financial Institutions. I don't know much about this topic, but I think it would be a liability if a foreign country were to outsource the coding of such programs to English speakers who might end up being a mole, or perhaps they have natives who speak English as a second language. That makes me think that this will make coding less efficient and they could miss a few things. I know there are a lot of brilliant computer techs whose second language is English and are quite successful, - Chinese hackers who compromise US networks- but I'd imagine they would have to be very proficient with the English language.
I've read for example that most unsecured networks are foreign because they don't set it up properly or maintenance is neglected. So how do other countries do it? It's a question I find intriguing.
Is there programming done in Chinese? Since we're on the topic.
