From looking at the sign, you can't - but if you visit a place and open
your eyes and ears it'll become pretty obvious. If you walk into a shop
or a post office in the pointy bits of north Wales I can pretty much
guarantee that people will be speaking Welsh. It would be unfair and
unrepresentative to suggest that English has equivalence where that is
the case. Signs - particularly road signs - appear in two languages
throughout, but that doesn't mean that in a particular area both
languages are in equal usage.
What you can't expect to do is jump in with a "global search and
replace" such as https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/50943658 using
level0 and not get complaints.
