I wanted to know if the short duas, like while travelling, while getting on a vehicle, while entering/exiting toilets, making decision for wudu/salat, etc are compulsory to be said in Arabic or could it be said in English or some local language?

Would you mind reading my answer on Is it acceptable to perform istikhara in English if so how? and inform us whether this answers your question or not!

  • It is best to recite in the language you can understand because at that time you know what you are saying. So better to learn Arabic, so you can understand what you are praying.
