I hope you're aware that this way of asking is bound to get you very biased answers? :-] There are many people (me included) who prefer their native language, but we usually don't spend so much time on English social networks.

A few years ago, I wrote a textbook on Computability theory. My colleagues were surprised I didn't write it in English. But my purpose was to help my students learn. If they are OK with using an English book for that, no problem -- but there are already many of them. But if they would like a Croatian book, they would have a poor choice until I wrote mine.

Congrats, I think that that is something really good to do, it's a way to help your local community, wich in many cases, besides well developed countries, are not well grown.

I think it's much more about the raw size, than the "development" (whatever that is anyway:). Compare the number of books on almost any topic written in India vs. Netherlands, for example. :-D
