I recently made this site viewable in many more languages. I’m surprised by how much you are using this service already. If English is not your first language, please let me know how this is working for you. (To change language, click on a flag in the top right of this page.)


Comment in any language you would like (just be sure to put the name of your language in English, so I can translate what you write :)

Please represent your country here and get to know fellow readers! If your country isn’t on the map above, it will be now!

  16. It may surprise you, but as most western countries do have english in school being non native speaker does not necessary mean being incapable of understanding your english site.

    Additionally it is usually preferable to have a page in english (which you need a dictionary for) than to have a site done by automated translation.

    As it is the same in your case – the translation is unbearable though maybe useful to look up a few words. :) As long as you let it be a choice and do not try to force it on anybody (like in my case serve me german just because i come from a german ip) that is fine for me. ;)

    Thanks for your advice Nicole :)

    I’ll keep that in mind and make sure it’s an option. I just feel ignorant when I go to non English speaking countries and expect them to speak English… I want everyone to be able to enjoy my work.

    Yes, but see if you didn’t speak English then the translation would be a lifesaver!

    English isn’t my first language. Portuguese (Brazil) is my native language. In general I like more the English language (despite I’m not very fluent), for info matters because the majority of software come in English. So, even the translated programs I usually choose the English option. It’s less confusing.
    Windows Guides is the best newsletter I ever have known. WG is helping a lot to know the new Microsoft OS Windows 7.
    Accept my congratulations for your serious and brilliant work.
