    is it ok to have a non-english language blog on WordPress.com?

    I'm just asking it as I don't see any FAQs etc on wordpress.com and a lot of hosted services require people to have english language blogs/websites only.

    so I want to ask if its ok to have a non-english blog on wordpress.com, I'll be blogging in Hindi.

    Don't worry, there's no restriction on what language you write in!

    FAQs: http://faq.wordpress.com/ - link located at the VERY BOTTOM of the admin pages, seems like it would be better located in the sidebar on the actual blog (just a personal opinion....)

    But what about localization?
    Is it possible to have my .mo file uploaded?

    its good to know that there's no restriction on the language!! :)

    and guess I just missed the link at the footer in the admin section, last place I'd think of looking for a link like that!! ;)

    amit, I too was amazed at where it really was. Needs moving soonest!

    kichu, I don't know about the localization. Did you read through the faqs? Or perhaps you might need to use the feedback tab for this one....

    Most of us here use self-hosted blogs; we don't necessarily have the answers on the wordpress.com hosted setup, which is why we usually say "we really don't support wordpress.com blogs"....

    vkaryl, I agree with you. FAQs look good on the homepage(since no other page is available publicly on the main WordPress.com site except the signup page), where people look for them. I wonder how many people will remember to look at the footer in the admin section when the box to compose a post is at about halfway of the page length & that page is the most used, you don't visit the options tab etc. more regularly than that, except dashboard. :)

    kichu, I don't think that localization is possible as yet, if you mean having the WP-Admin in a non-english language at WordPress.com. I guess you'll have to host your own WordPress if you want that. However you can blog in a language other than english as long as its in unicode since WordPress supports unicode. Like I'm blogging in Hindi at http://itsme.wordpress.com/ and anyone can read it without any problems as long as they are using a unicode supporting browser like IE6 or Opera on a unicode supporting os.

    we really don't support wordpress.com blogs

    ;)
