Gary Illyes of Google posted on Twitter tip about reconsideration requests. In short, if your web site is in Hebrew and you get a manual action notice, write your reconsideration request in Hebrew. Don't write it in English or a different language - write it in the language of your web site.

He wrote, "TIL: Writing a reconsideration request in English if the site is not English is a brilliant way to shoot yourself in the foot."

Seems pretty strict on that. I mean, I don't really see why it is so bad to write it in English, many webmasters who build sites in other languages also speak English fluently and most Googlers I know speak English fluently well. But this tip is coming from Google, so go with it.

Gary added later that they will end up processing the reconsideration request but it may take more time:
