Justin, I wonder if it would be feasible to have a translator option in the forums for when people ask questions in a different language? It might help for people that don't know English too well....just a thought if it is possible...Thanks

http://google.translate.com works fine and the Poster can easily do the translation themselves, if they could be bothered !

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Hey XpUser4Real,

Thanks for the suggestion. This is something I had thought about in the past. However, there are a few technical issues. The first is that it would be hard to automatically determine if the user didn't post in English. Of course, the easy solution is to allow non-English speakers to select the translation language when posting. As Jolicloud says though, they could translate themselves if they wanted, so I'm not sure how much they would use this feature.

Anyway, it is something I'll keep in mind.

Thanks for the suggestion!
