Let user decide on default language when creating Office 365 tenancy
When new tenancy is created, all default site collections are created with the language that corresponds to the country where the company is placed. This is inconvenient and needs to be re-done in cross-country companies. I suggest to let admin decide on language for the default site collections.
It's 2020, it's ridiculous that this is not an option.

+1 completely agree - we have offices around the world, but we are stuck with Swedish as the default language - our users in the US, Thailand, Kenya and Colombia are not happy to receive notification emails from Sharepoint in Swedish. Painful for our company, and makes some work impossible.
I join to Tomas, with my example: I registered on the Austrian site, and have the default language German. Independently to the base/default language the users can select their preferred language, so the idea to have other language than English as default makes the job of the developers even more difficult.
