    There's a new thread in Digital by someone who's native language is French and he's posted in American/English. I have read more than a few such posts here in which the OP will apologize for their poor English. I got to wondering if it wouldn't be easier for them to post in their native language and we could translate it on our end. I don't think there is a translator on this site, but I could copy paste it to Google's translator and probably get a decent version of the post.

    That's a bit complicated. Any chance a translator could be embedded as a tool here?

    Morning Spans!

    I have read and replied to the "French MIDI" guy and you will I think see that I found his English no problem. His error was that of ALL noobs, no makes and models!

    As to the wider language issue? No, I certainly don't think people should post in their native language for several reasons,..

    1) Many here will simply ignore a post they cannot immediately understand.
    2) No matter how good the translation, something is lost or misinterpreted, this is especially true of technical words. I for instance have a tiny smattering of French, my son lives there and is fluent but neither of us have a clue what "Digital Audio Workstation" is en fracais!

    And 3, Like it or not rest of World, English IS the most common language in use (especially I bet among scientists and engineers?) Air Traffic is all in English I understand? So, people really want to become proficient in "our" language (despite the mangling YOUS guys give it over there!) and what better way than to work through a complex, technical matter with some well informed and very nice people?

    Dave.

    The limited experience I have with auto-translation showed it more as a source of amusement than a useful tool.
    We ended up removing it (game-servers) and requesting English chat only.

    Edit: Dave, go easy. Your guys's is trying.

    Ah! Jusfort! DO you mean my dig at our colonial friends? I am sure they will take that on the chin? In anycase "they" actually speak a form of English that is probably closer to the "original" than we use today.

    It's just parts of a cars and valves they keep getting wrong!

    Whoa, it's all good. I was joining in your joke.
    The number of times I've heard a US youtuber say "your guyses" instead of just "your"...
    It physically hurts me.

    If you disagree, I'd love to hear your guyses thoughts.

    HAHA! I in particular love the diversity. I do tend to lose some of the dialect when it comes to Sir Dave (ecc83). Sometimes I just say to myself 'what the fuck is he talking about'... LOL!

    No offense at all man! <3
