Depends on the company, depends on the country.

In the UK, it's uncommon for employees to speak anything other than English (Welsh and other regional languages like Geordie and Yorkshire excepted) so it's not a requirement.

In other countries like Switzerland, multilingualism is the norm, and a good command of English, German (or more likely Switzerdeutsch), and probably French is pretty much expected.

If a role requires talking to people in a language - perhaps a close working relationship with a Japanese or Chinese company - then a good command of that language would only be a benefit.

But for most software developers, the regional language is sufficient, though a good command of English can help a lot with the documentation! Laugh | :laugh:
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
