Did anyone noticed that you can only search terms from a foreign language to English and not the other way around? Is this new, or am I doing something wrong?

Please let me know, I am curious.

Yeah, I remember thinking the same thing a while ago, but it actually works.

"English (UK)" only works into "English"
However, "English" (at the top of the list) does work into any of the foreign languages.
