Misused: Bilingual Bonus get usage counts

Here's the start of a suggested rewrite of the description:

One way to hide an Easter Egg in plain sight is to cloak it in a foreign language. That way, bilingual and international audiences get extra information or a special treat from their knowledge.

The extra can be anything from a plot-relevant point to additional dialogue (often used to demonstrate that they've Shown Their Work with the language) to a random gag.

[Compare/contrast section?]

A Bilingual Bonus using names falls under Meaningful Name. Creators and actors who know a foreign language... is Not a Trope.
