Correct. Native Lua and Blizzard Lua, like most programming languages, work in English. Passing non-English parameters will cause errors.

There are a few exceptions like GetSpellInfo that accept words in any language, but they are rare. And that causes issues if you aren't careful, because passing "Mind Blast" to an Italian client will cause a nil error because that's not how the spell is, um, spelled, in Italian. When dealing with that kind of situation, it is best to think big picture.
