Description

Since many of our docs are only available in English, we should provide a link from the non-English search results page to the English search results page.

I proposed an idea here that I still stand behind, though it is just an idea.

Wondering what Holly thinks of the different approaches possible here.

Just saw this comment. I went ahead and implemented a link in a PR:

https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/pull/1390

I could go either way. This is aligned with what we currently do - where we filter the results based on the user's current locale. 

We don't have any code in place to show "language stubs" in results.
Summary: link to switch to English results from non-English results page → Conditionally offer English search results to non-English search users
Holly: Comment 2 sounds good for beta launch.
