An advice, make Full Backup of current ROM/Firmware before doing anything with device you are willing/thinking to try.

I'm using Huawei Ascend y511. so can't do that, but i believe "CN" stands for Chinese and "EN" sure for English. regarding recovery language, for me i get two different modes, recovery and factory setting i believe. Stock recovery for my mobile is in English and the other is Chinese. But, in case you get chinese recovery, i think it can be replaced with "Custom Recovery (English)".
Once Stock/Custom ROM is installed/flashed, you sure can change language option to English or Chinese as mentioned about ROM languages (Not for recovery).
Point is that; once ROM is installed/flashed & you are satisfied with it and you also got backup of current Kitkat ROM and you find recovery is in CN. You can restore ROM to Kitkat or in case you don't care about warranty and can flash/install Custom recovery(English language) without going into CN recovery. then i think it shouldn't be a problem.
