I'm studying Russian. As such, my laptop (Lenovo T460 thinkpad if it matters) is set up to switch between English and Russian when I hit alt shift.
Well, being the human I am, I occasionally don't think to switch back to English. So, in the searchbar, I'll hit the keys for "Y, O, U, T, U, B, E". Only, my Cyrillic keyboard is still enabled. So, instead of English, the real search is "нщгегиу". (н shares a key with y, щ shares a key with o, and so on.)
Instead of returning gibberish like you'd think, Google (Chrome) still returns YouTube. Screenshot
This isn't limited to Youtube, I've found it working for all of my searches. Does google search using your default computer language? Does it do some weird fuzzy logic to figure out what's more likely? It seems silly to set up dozens of Hidden Markov Models to check the language each and every search...
