    Question Might I Add ...

    For the people reading a post written in English that seems, how should I say? Not up to your standard? Consider first that it may be someone posting in their second, third, or whatever language. Please don't be too swift to condemn, give the poster a chance. Perhaps even ask them if English is their native language?

    This may go some way to obtaining the relevant understanding?

    Just a thought!

    Actually, this one should be a sticky in EVERY forum.
    I second this. I really think this is a good idea and should definitely be made a sticky in every forum. It'll also help with more member's to the site if you think about it.

    . sounds like a good idea..

    a thought.. to be most effective wouldn't our replies need to be in both languages as well

    It is good to see a thought moved to the next step.

    The google language tools look promising.
    I've been using altavistas bablefish for a while, it looks quite similar.

    Its translations are a little choppy to say the least, but at least it opens up a line of communication.

    Having trouble to spell certain english words?

    There's a "Spell Check" button if you "Post Reply".

    You cannot find the correct spelling but you have a vague idea?
    Try Merriam-Webster Online

    Yes there is a Button There That says "Spell Check" ................But the instresting question is does it work...............

    A couple of months ago i tried clicking on it ............and came to know that it is not functioning anymore.

    You cannot find the correct spelling but you have a vague idea?
    Try Merriam-Webster Online
    The link is quite good gives you a lot of suggestive words .............i generally go to almighty google for that too put in the word in the search box click search and it will give you

    Did you mean:

    generally it's the word...........quick way of doing it

    Actually, this one should be a sticky in EVERY forum
    If not that the next best thing would be site FAQ

    --Good Luck--
