Languages used on the Internet provides a compilation of information on the number of Internet users and the number of Web sites on the Internet by language.
Languages used 
Most web pages on the Internet are in English. A study made by W3Techs shows that as of December 2011 more than 56% of all websites use English as their content language. Other top languages which are used at least in 2% of websites are German, Russian, Japanese, Spanish, Chinese, French, Italian and Portuguese. Note that those figures account for the one million web sites (e.g. 0.27% of the total web sites according to figures of Dec. 2011) the most visited, according to Alexa.com, and language is identified using only the home page of the sites in most of the cases. As a consequence those figures offer a significantly higher percentage for many languages (especially for English) as compared to the real figures for the whole universe (which remain unknown as of today but that some sources estimate below 50% for English - See for instance NET.LANG: Towards a multilingual cyberspace).
The use of English online has increased by around 281% over the past ten years, however this is far less than Spanish (743%), Chinese (1,277%), Russian (1,826%) or Arabic (showing a growth of 2,501% over the same period). The foreign language internet is rapidly expanding, with English being used by only 27% of users worldwide.
A study on the presence of Romance languages on the Internet, published by the Latin Union in collaboration with FUNREDES, showed that as of November 2007, 45% of the webpages were written in English, 7.8% in Spanish, 4.41% in French, 2.66% in Italian, 1.39% in Portuguese, 0.28% in Romanian and 5.9% in German.
