Biggest reason I’ve seen is the same reason I delete spam in Chinese/Japanese/charset that is foreign to me.

When I know I’m supposed to be reading something I toss it into google translate, when I don’t expect it, it may not even reach my $inbox.  I’d expect writing to people in their non-native language is more likely to result in things being ignored or misclassified[1].

I work for a part of a multinational that doesn’t use the roman alphabet and mails are sometimes missed for this reason between our groups.

This is far more of a two way street than people realize.  When you find that person who speaks both languages it can remove hurdles.
