tor returns localized web pages

Description

When Tors' action results in a 'foreign' IP address, Google (for example) returns the appropriately localized page!
Not a huge problem for Google, I suppose, but
http://www.torproject.org/download.html.de is a challenge for an English speaker.

Feature request: would it be possible to perform a reverse-localization lookup in order to stay within the language domain of the originating user?

Upon further review... I'm only seeing this with Firefox under Mac OS X 10.5. Windows XP SP2 appears to deliver constant English.

https://wiki.torproject.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#GoogleLanguage It the other end that matters. Perhaps
you have something on FireFox for windows that forces US-en. Or perhaps you didn't exit through a non-US node while
using Windows.
