Why should I not put -s at the end of the word if I put the word "every" before that word?
The bug error appears on every Non-English language(s)
I was told to take out the -s because it is considered wrong to put one when the word "every" is present.

This cat has fur.
Every cat has fur. Not, "every cats have fur."
Every is expanding a statement about a singular cat to be true for all cats.
Every modifies a singular noun, not the plural noun.
compare that to "all cats have fur." Which takes a plural noun and modifies it so that the statement applies to each individual.
Every - this truth about an individual applies to all the members of the group.
All - this truth about the group is a feature of each individual in that group.
"every" expands the individual into the group.
"all" contracts the group into each of the members of that group.

Every means essentially the same as "each". 'Each" is singular. It means that you're looking at them one at a time. The noun is singular following every.
