    Default Foreign language forum

    Would be possible to add some subforums for non-English languages?

    I'm Italian and it would be nice to build a little Italian community

    Are there more non-English native here?

    yes.. but I prefer just to communicate in the english threads instead of having to go through 300 subforums to find answer to my question ..

    @Benni: lol Agreed. There could be off-topic ones though.. but I still think it'll be a little hard to manage.

    perhaps we can use some translation or something? At this point we have a member of around 1800 and out of which about 650 are active members, so i dont think there is any need for other languages at this point?

    Regarding "non english" users, when i access the traffic logs and stuff of the site, i find there are thousands of visitors using "Google Translation" to read the content.. So probably we can add a Global Translator Plugin if needed be?

    Well, it actually translates pretty well!

    This was translated from french:
    "I have a problem! Google Chrome does not work at all. Help me thank you in advance!"

    I actually use Cleeki for any translation I need to do (it actually uses Google Translation Services) ...

    See attached thumbnails ...

    It also has a lot of other features that are well worth looking at ..

    http://www.cleeki.com/download.html

    Btw No particular reason for translating to Finnish ;-)

    Wellllll... depends what you wrote in french.. if it was:

    "I love Chrome. Itís always working. Thanks that I never was in need for help"

    ....... then itís not good at all hahaha


    Hehe... but serious, the auto translations are really good... in my opinion itís just important that English will be the only language in the "main forum".

    Only in the sub forums (Google Chrome Forums/By Language/Italiano for example) it should be allowed to post in [Italian] or whatever... I remember other Forums where people started posting in their native language because they saw some "auto-translation-widget" and thought.. hey... the main audience can translate my text cuz THEY want to help me *g*
