WP support Forums: are there international versions? (6 posts)

    Hello everyone!

    A have a quick question about these forums and international usage. I have noticed that the vast majority of the posting on these forums are written in the English Language. Now, every once in a while (very rare!) I run across one not written in English.
    exempli gratia,: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/375155?replies=1

    Now this is written in French. So, my question is this: Is there a separate forum for those who do not speak/write English? Do posters simply have to have at least a rudimentary understanding of English? Or are alternate-language posts freely mixed in with the whole structure?

    Much interested, looking forward to knowing!

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    In this screen http://wordpress.org/support/ I have an option to choose a Forum in my own country's language.

    Hmm, that is interesting. I am in the USA, and I can see no such option.
    I'm guessing that there is some sort of code that controls exact page content based on the location of the user.

    Yeah, I know. Try http://XX.forums.wordpress.org/ where XX is your country's shortcode like "de" for Germany and "nl" for netherlands or just do a search within wordpress.org with words in the language you want.

    Even though it is impossible to mark the Miscellaneous threads as resolved,

    This topic is resolved

    Thanks.
