I think it means you're supposed to emphasize that part.

Its sumthing in any other regional language, other than english.

The author is trying to emphasize those words, and let the reader know that they are significant.

It's usually used to emphasize the word or phrase. It's more acceptable than writing the same text in ALL CAPS. It's the equivalent of what we used to do in the olden days with typewriters when we'd underline a word or phrase. Now, with the ability to change from regular to italic, underlining generally is out and italicizing is in. It's also used to indicate publication names. In a research paper, many of the styles call call for the journal or reference work to be italicized. Hope that helps.
