If I turn the discussion to be a little more political, leaving irony aside. As a Spaniard I try to do my best in English, but there is a lot of people out there that don't even come to our website threatened by the language.

As open source developer my main obsession is not Software or Coding in English, but documentation in Spanish. And I think it should be for others in my position. The older I grow, the more I understand this need, the more people I meet that need this.

So, I will do whatever is in my powers to make Arduino available to Spanish speakers. Of course, if we discover something fabulous, there will be someone in the community making an effort to translate it to English, that's for sure.

As someone who happens to get labeled English teacher by our South Korean employees, I can fully understand that not everyone is fully versed in the English language, Just as I am not fully versed on Korean

but when it comes to it, when we need to we get the thought across just fine due to the environment we work in

same applies to code

you can look at a sketch where the variable names may be in a foreign language to you, but you can still understand what is happening

having native language forums helps those who may not be expressive in English ask questions and get results, and really its most of the same questions

just kinda makes me feel bad cause I do not understand the question, but may already have an answer... but you cant help everyone I guess  :-[


Personally I wish I knew a foreign language or two, but the little french I took in high school just didn't stick.

Any possibility of adding some kind of "google translator" button or something to all of the forums? I was just looking wistfully at the international area and thinking to myself "I bet there are some interesting projects going on in there that I haven't a chance of understanding simply because I don't speak the language".

Then again, maybe everything worthwhile is on the english boards anyhow?

Still, I tend to wonder if there isn't a secret Ronja project equivalent occuring in there...

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.
