    Default Language forums

    Hi Mr. Administrador
    I think it'll be better if all the forum were divided in diferent languages, for example:
    spanish- English
    Fren-english
    Italian-english
    etc.
    It will be very helpful for all because i always see "meaning of" but we don't know the languege of the person who asked that question so we have to explain it in english

    regards

    There is a space in the member profile for them to indicate their first language.

    However, as TDOL said, this is an English language fourm and answers should be in English where possible so that they can help as many people as possible.

    That's true, but we ask you to write in English so that you learn the English language. If you want to communicate in other languages, we have the Other Languages folder for exactly that purpose.
