    APUG full foreign language support is almost up and running (German, French, Dutch)

    Hi All,

    This is a project that I have been quite happy to take on and it's only the beginning. It involves dedicated language forums for German, French & Dutch. Not just translated forum titles but also the ability for members to change the complete language set and buttons of the APUG system. You will notice this new addition in the main APUG menu bar. German is mostly running but needs a few tweaks. French and Dutch are in progress. Once these 3 forums are complete we can look into additional dedicated languages. I would like to thank all those involved in providing me translations and volunteering to moderate forums in their language. This should continue to grow our base even further. Strength in numbers

    Thanks!
    Sean

    P.S. I will have this post translated for the other forums.

    Tenakoe e hoa Sean.

    Could it be that you mean languages other than English? Rather than "foreign".

    From my 20 years in NZ it was apparent that everyone picked up a little Maori, even if was from government proclamations, foreign was not applicable. when applied to languages other than English :-)

    Regards - Ross

    Sean:

    I notice that the option for English indicates that it is US English.

    Is there an option for real English?

    Like Canadian English, eh?

    English is a foreign language to me - all versions of it.

    I'd prefer the less colourfull version. I always see those flags first.

    Waiting for that `all grey´ button.

    I can convert American into English if required!

    There is only one real English. That's English English (but Canadian English is closer than some!).

    Sean, after surfing through almost all of the German threads today, it is interesting to see the amount of new people posting. Most having under 5 posts to their name!.

    Whilst there appeared to be some doubt to the need, or necessity of a German sub-forum by some German speaking APUG members, it does seem that there were more than a few people out there who could not converse in English well enough to participate.

    I'm sure these new people, who voted with their keyboards, are thankful.

    Time will tell, hopefully it will be well used.

    Mick.

    We've definitely had a spike in activity and it's only been a couple of days. It should be interesting to see how it pans out.

    I desaturated the flags a bit so they are not too overpowering..

    Good to see that all the analogue beerdrinking, mustachioed knackwursters in lederhosen has somewhere to hang out now. Oh, and of course anyone else not fitting that description!

    What's next, Sean, Spanish? There are certainly a lot of Spanish speakers in the world.
