Is it possible that there are Forums in other languages​​? I think this is a great value for this forum.

Cheers,
Luc

I think me and the other 23 people who have read this don't quite understand what you are asking (i'm not trying to be awkward)

I have read that there are other CT forums in Germany and France at least but quote "I think this is great value for this forum" doesn't quite make sense to me? are you just making a statement? or are you meaning something else that we can help you with?

PS. I ONLY speak and understand English and think all the other nationalities represented on this forum do a great job when using english to communicate which is obviously not their native tongue.

Most of you are better at english than most english people are  :305:

I think Luc`s talking about a sort of Babel`s corner on this forum, a sort of subforum in which different languages have their own topic. Looks a bit like this: (bottom page, Babel`s corner: http://forum.fractalaudio.com/forum.php)

Oops, sorry for the bad explanation but I was in a little bit of hurry. I mean some subforums in other languages, like Dutch, German, Italian, French, etc. So we can talk our mother language to people from the same country.
Sometimes there are some local deals, a meeting that we want to share etc.
I hope this is more clear than the previous question.

Here is an example: http://www.websitebaker.org/forum  (a forum about a Content Management System)
As you can see, there is the normal forum in English. Below you see the other languages​​. The English language does contain the most part. The foreign languages ​​have fewer subforums.

Cheers,
Luc

I suggest to keep the forum in one language.

Why ?
The "temptation" to use one's *   own language to write faster and more precisely can be too big. So the community may miss some interesting information. I am not sure, if all people have the discipline to only write local information in their own language.
Just my two cents .....

* by the way: do I need the apostrophe here or not ?  ;-)
I guess, I slept at school, when we discussed this rule ....

What could be done is to mention other CT forum links on the home page.
