Dear Support-Forum-Users

I wonder if it would be possible to improve the forum by offering channels in different languages. I can imagine that there are a lot of users who would offer their help to other users if they could do this in their mothers tongue.
And I can imagine, too, that some users would like to ask a question, but are to shy to do it in a foreign language. So please use the "Vote"-Button here to show - is it a good idea.
As answers you could offer, in what languages you may offer support. If your favourit language is offered, you may vote for this language in order for other users to see, which languages are needed.

To improve the use for all of cource would be ideal if the answers in mothers tongue are followed by a brief explanation in english.

I would be happy to learn how you think about this.

There is no rule that prescribes language. I can't actually imagine why the Finnish initiators chose English as their site language :D. But apart from that I also think English develops quite naturally here. (In continental Europe, if you look at convention organisation from this year onward, they want us to speak English across borders. Not that that makes everyone happy ;) ) Downside of separate fora, people are going to invent the wheel twice. And what if you have a "small" language (think Baltic e.g.). You would have a small pool of support. At the same time there are probably a lot of smart kids there, and the rest of us would miss their experience. Having said that, if some one asks a question in his language right here, I am sure it will be picked up. I remember it happened before and it wasn't a problem. If necessary, maybe someone can translate the Q to English, so as to widen the scope of help, and we'll get there. Maybe the answer comes in the mother tongue, and a summary is given in English, or the answer comes in English, and someone will take the trouble to translate it back to the language of the one posting the question. So, since you want to know how the rest of us think, I would see more in a multi-language thread, even though it may look messy, than in separate fora. So many of us live in multi-language countries: we can handle that.

Hi all,

this forum supports multiple languages natively. If someone wants to give support in certain language, that's considerable. We just have thought that English is most global language we can deal with.

So if there are volunteers to give support in some language, we could try it. But if there are some bugs that needs to be known for the team, these should be reported somehow.

BR,
Juha
