    Every post should be able to be generated in multiple languages without any plugin.

    Not only the posts, but the template could be generated in more than one language.

    This indeed sorta duplicates the idea webtortuga links to. I recommend the Gengo approach to multilinguality.

    Gengo is good, but it would be nice to have this as a feature - or at least as a default plugin.

    The default plugins should really include spam filtering, content protection and support for multi-lingual blogs.

    I agree; I didn't mean to imply that the Gengo-type of implementation should be a plugin — I think a case could be made for it to be in the core.

    <bloquote>Every post should be able to be generated in multiple languages without any plugin.

    If you mean automatically generated, then this is impractical and unlikely to happen in core. (Which languages? Your favourite languages? How about every African language? How would it be generated?)

    If you mean manually generated (content written once in each language by the author), why do you want it in core if there are plugins that can already do this? The vast majority of users don't want or need to write in multiple languages. As it's not a 'core' problem, it shouldn't go in the core. You should check out the multilingual plugins that are available, find one that mostly works for you, and make specific requests to the plugin author for features that you need. If they can't do it because of a limitation with WordPress, then is the time to ask for a core enhancement - for the addition of new plugin hooks, the core devs are remarkably accommodating.

    In case I want to serve people in two or three languages it would be wonderful to have the feature in WordPress.

    majelbstoat: How do you know what the majority of users want? Isn't that what this voting system is for?

    Besides, if a large group of people (i.e. most the non-english-speaking-world, which by the way is most of the world) who want this feature don't get it with WP then they are not going to use it and hence NOT be in you "Most users" category.

    Perhaps "Most potential users" is a better demographic to look at of which, again, you have no information on.

    p.s. most of the multi-lingual plugins have a compromise of one kind or another so there still isn't a 100% workable solution.
