I had to click through and look at the examples, just to expose myself to the same sensation programmers who don’t read any English must get when they approach the languages I work in daily. It’s easy to forget what a leg up that gives… I’ve implemented the Chinese remainder theorem more than once, and I can make head nor tail of this sample which the article assures us implements that same theorem.
Google Translate is a great, if whimsical, equalizer. Even without the details, seeing the notation in an alphabet you understand lets you start picking out the structure:

Nice. I didn’t think to apply a translator.
A programming language is a great application for that.
I considered playing with one of their transpilers, but didn’t feel like going as far as installing something.
