How can we improve Primo?

Facet "language" not working

The facet "language" in Primo is not working correctly. When I choose another language than german or english, e.g. italian, I got german or english titles whose authors have an italian background. This is not making any sense. Especially our chinese students expect titles in chinese when they use this facet. And as it is a global problem I think ExLibris has to find a solution. I checked with several Primo catalogues from other libraries:

e.g.
http://www.getty.edu/research/library/
https://fu-berlin.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=FUB
https://library.wlu.ca/
http://primo.abdn.ac.uk:1701/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do (they obviously deactivated the language facet already while it is not working)
http://primo.tug-libraries.on.ca/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=WATERLOO&reset_config=true
http://primo.bib.uni-mannheim.de/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=MAN_UB
http://onesearch.slq.qld.gov.au/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=SLQ&fromLogin=true
http://primo.ub.uni-due.de/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do
http://catalogue.solent.ac.uk/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=SSUVU01
http://whel-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=44WHELF_ABW_VU1&reset_config=true
http://bvb-new-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=49BVB_UBG01_VU1
https://hollis.harvard.edu/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=HVD
a.s.o.

In all libraries I checked there is the same problem that the language facet is not working correctly. So I hope that other libraries will vote for this enhancement request as it is a fatal error in the facets functionality. And I think we should not accept this failure.
