Is there a reason the fastest runs are non-english versions?

Newcomer to the community. I'm inspired by so many amazing runs. I see many runs are spoken in english, but the game version is in Japanese (or maybe another eastern language, I cannot tell). Is it just personal choice, or do other language versions click through the dialog faster perhaps? Thanks, I'm learning.

Technically (as far as I'm aware, admittedly I'm not the most familiar with this game) the regional version doesn't matter for this game in particular, people just set the language to Chinese because of the reason Podz explained. Other games yeah you pretty much hit the nail on the head. There are some exceptions that if I recall are mentioned in the video Podz linked.

There is only one "version" of odyssey, the language can be picked in the settings, regardless of region. Chinese (Simplified) is the fastest, which is the third from the bottom.

Japanese text needs less characters to type so it saves only like 7 seconds in total?

Thank you to all that replied. I watched the video. I hadn't realized that games were programmed differently per region.
