* TranslationConvention means everyone "speaks" English in ''ATaleOfTwoCities''; however, an InUniverse version of this trope happens when [[{{Determinator}} Madame Defarge]] barges into Lucie's house, intending to have her RevengeByProxy, but is stopped by [[MamaBear Miss Pross]]. The narrator tells us that both women spoke in their native language and neither of them understood what the other said, but their facial expressions and body language makes their intentions perfectly clear to each other.

Added DiffLines:
* Frequent in ''Series/ServantOfThePeople'' where conversations in Russian on one side and Ukrainian on another are common, and flow perfectly thanks to the two languages being very similar. It is also TruthInTelevision.

** This is the main mode of communication on the ISS, since all the Russian cosmonauts learn English during pre-flight training and all non-Russian astronauts learn Russian (and, obviously, English too if they didn't know it already). Thus, 'everyone' on the station is bilingual, and Russian and English words are used in equal measure in conversations.
