Help for non-English speaking users


#1

Who is the most knowledgeable guy for you here,
next to @Norm of course … and why?

For me, it’s @Eldar, @Jakerlund and @Pauland.
Because these make the effort to make videos and snapshots, besides their text.
Which people whose natural language is not English, are visually very helpful.

I ask the question with the background, how can you answer in a forum with xy participants from different countries, but which is conducted in English, best answer.

PS.:
I am more dependent on help … than I can give linguistically.
Is it so hard to offer an official help-forum in different languages?
It is the technical terms and their deeper meaning,
which tired at work.

i think this forum should stay a ‘one language forum’ as every problem only needs one time to be solved. And some problems never would be solved in a multi language forum… (e.g. problem in german - solution is only known to someone not understanding…)

i think it makes more sense to learn better english :blush: - so for me forums like this are not only good for finding help or helping s.o. else, they also help me learning better english. :slight_smile:

In german/auf deutsch: nur Mut, das mit dem Englisch verstehen und formulieren ist gar nicht so schwer und hält die Birne in Schwung!

That’s right …
but if I get tired, I would like to read German.

If I am fresh, I usually do not need any help.
And in the forum in German, or in another language,
everyone could link, to any language, if there is a video to it - for example.

@Norm, wollte ein Wunder ohne Code-Vorwissen erzeugen, nicht ich.
Und ich bin ihm sehr dankbar dafür.

PS.: "If I am fresh, I usually do not need any help."
That’s wrong!

So, into the world:
who does not always understand the friendly and responsive answers in English
… and does not answer, simply because he believes,
he can not understand it in English?

But would like to have a translation, that gives them security in understanding.
A common world of winners does not need any foreign languages, but until then.


#5

Do you mean that you would like each user to be able to use their native language, and then for any comments to be translated as needed. In effect a single forum with in line translation for a specific users preference!

That would be amazing, though can’t say I have ever seen one.


#6

Does the Chrome translate option work well enough to help you out?


#7

No, uh … no!
Everyone in his language.
This is difficult enough …
who moderates, who says what is right and wrong.


#8

Ask Italian, French and other Europeans
how much they use English, out of there joy.


#9

Totally understand. Especially as I have no linguistic skills at all, so I would be totally excluded from none English sites.

Quite envious of all you out there with more than one language.


#10

Thus @Norm

Translate your no-code app, finally into other languages.
Translation is the key to … success.


#11

Google interpreter perfectly copes with this problem)


#12

@bear
Yes … I also know a good program in Arabic.
Let’s try the translation then … on Google.

So well,
but never tell me again, as an Austrian, who lives in Germany
… we are linguistically nationalist.

Especially, regarding help forums.


#13

And by the way …
how many languages can a native English speak?
One!
Great performance
… and this means the world.
