I'm not sure "Improved translation/global English fluency" is an unalloyed good... could lead to a harmful global monoculture (putting all our eggs in one basket culturally). Feel free to reduce my award count by one :)

Also helping Westerners chill out could leave them less prepared to deal with belligerent Middle Easterners.
