Plugin Directory: Add a link to the plugin page in English

Description

When viewing a plugin page in a language other than English (e.g. coming from Google) there is no link to easily switch to the English original. Not even in the Development tab where all the translations are listed it is possible to choose English. It’s annoying that the only chance is to manually change the URL.

A link should be added that leads to the English version whenever viewing a plugins page in a language other than English.

Hey @petersplugins, thanks for opening this ticket!

While recreating the Plugin Directory we tried to declutter the existing UI, and pared down a lot of the things that we felt were not used by a large number of users. Adding links to other language sites feel like part of that to me, where in my assessment it's not too much to ask to change the URL to get there and the general demand for a link I imagine would be low.

@obenland Thanks for your response. The actual UI no more displays the list of available translations. Now there's a "See all X" link that opens a popup list with all languages - including English. Mission accomplished.
