I would like to translate the languages to hebrew. Otherwise it looks weird.

This is intentional. The names of other languages should be in their native language, not in the language of the site. The point being that if you use another language, you should recognize your languages name in that list, which you might not do if it is translated.

For example, "Dansk" does not show up as "Danish" on the English page. Nor should it.

Not sure I agree with you.

Fwiw, I disagree with why this was closed. If we're going to have languages in a sentence they should be localized. In the case of the English plugin directory, that would be in English. That said, I think this is a wontfix in favor of #1259, where we should list all locales in the sidebar, in their native name.
