The following script is useful in case you have set a wrong default language in the Localization administration section. It will help you fix the default language meta data of the pages that were created with the wrong default language. Make sure you update the value of the oldDefaultLocale and newDefaultLocale variables to match your needs.

#set ($oldDefaultLocale = 'xx')
#set ($newDefaultLocale = 'yy')
#set ($matchDefaultLocale = 'doc.translation = 0 and doc.defaultLanguage = :defaultLocale')
#set ($matchTranslation = 'translation.translation = 1 and translation.language = :locale and doc.fullName = translation.fullName')
#set ($query = $services.query.xwql("from Document translation where $matchDefaultLocale and $matchTranslation order by,"))
#set ($discard = $query.bindValue('defaultLocale', $oldDefaultLocale))
#set ($discard = $query.bindValue('locale', $newDefaultLocale))
#set ($results = $query.execute())
$results.size() Results

#foreach ($result in $query.execute())
  * $result
  #if ($request.confirm == '1')
    #set ($defaultDoc = $xwiki.getDocument($result).document.clone())
    #set ($translatedDoc = $defaultDoc.getTranslatedDocument($newDefaultLocale, $xcontext.context))
    #foreach ($docToSave in $xwiki.wrapDocs([$defaultDoc, $translatedDoc]))
      #set ($discard = $"Change default locale from [$oldDefaultLocale] to [$newDefaultLocale]."))
