    English -- Not your best language

    You have a problem or a question but perhaps english is not a very good language for you to make yourself understood in. Try this:

    Post your question in the best possible english that you can. Please state the problem, and your operating system specifics, and what you have already attempted to fix or answer your problem.

    Then post the same thing in your own language. This is a international community and it is possible that some one else speaks your language and can translate it into a more understandable form for the rest of us. Also some of us have translator extensions on our browsers and can ( if it is a major language that is loaded) translate it into a more understandable form also.



    Any one who wants to add a translator extension to Firefox: https://update.mozilla.org/extension....php?pageid=11
    About 2/3 of the way to bottom of page, there are 3 different programs.

    Good Guidelines For non-English speaking people here?

    Sticky ?..........

    Google language tool can be helpful for translation form some languages......but as i found out the translation is sometimes not completely accurate ...

    Mox~ is so right!

    Or send it in a PM to me and I will have a go............

    I cannot give Mox~ positive APs because I have done it recently, maybe that is a problem?.........you are not allowed to be frequently correct or helpful?

    Nice thinking mate!
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....

    I put it where the newbies would be sure to see it ...... especially if they have a question they are trying to post.

    Our mods are excellent and if they think it would be better in another forum, I am sure they will move it.

    It will [hopefully] be made a 'sticky' and is an information service.
    That should allow those with English problems to give and receive assisstance.
    It is in this section, because the new member will come here first

    moxnix- good insight! It seems as though non-native english speakers try too hard sometimes and mess up in the process. This will definately help.
