a translation of the Torah to British שפת בריטניה זכה

In 1908 Shapiro and Vallentine published a set of Chumashim, with English translation. The translation is described as שפת בריטניה זכה Pure British. I have never heard English being called such and technically the British Language  has been extinct for many centuries. It seems they got a bit overboard with their patriotism here.
