SharePoint Online translations enabled by default

The issue is with multiple language browsers. By default, for some reason, people see different navigation and title translations when translations are not enabled.
If I create a site in English language, then open, say, Swedish language browser and edit the title, then people with English language browser will not see the changes.
In Windows this happens only for IE in my case. Chrome, Firefox and Edge are fine - they are displaying same content.
I've exported translations and see that title in English translation is different from title in Swedish translation.

When I go to Language settings, under Advanced settings I see that all languages are checked

If I uncheck Swedish language, then I see the same content in IE and Edge, which means that translations were removed.

This doesn't make any sense to be enabled by default, and I'm curious whether this is a bug?

    Hi @Rolands Strakis ,

    Per my test, I try to add language in “My Office Profile” and then change the title. But it didn’t work. English page and Swedish page are two different page. When you edit title in one page, it won’t change another page. This is by design.
