This is an old poll, but your comparison makes me smile. Just back from France and there it compares even better, as it does in Russia...
The results - I understand the poll is still open? - are such that what I - and others - wrote 2 years ago still holds true: very, very few users - and none of the professionals - would use the translation.
What the poll tells us is that there are 50% more people involved in maintaining it in some way or another than there are actual users.
Another comparison is from Greek mythology: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisyphus

(but note the response is too low to actually draw any statistical conclusion)

Most people that want to use threading should learn to patch their jeans first: use a needle.

Dutch is the major language between Germany and Britain anyway.
