Language Petition!

I have been in the war room for some time now, and I’ve struggled a bit engaging in content due to a language barrier. English is only my second language, and it sometimes takes me 10 minutes to translate a good value-oriented opinion. 


I think it would be great to see more post in different languages, so we can have a multicultural war room with endless possibilities! 


What do you think about this? Would love to hear your thoughts!

I don't see why not! We can include a language tab under the post like "Personal Growth" "Spanish".

What are your thoughts on this @GeneralCorp?

Me gusta pero mi espanol es equaldid tu ingles which I'm sure you could see with my poor spelling and grammar hahahaha. Also though I think this would be cool because I feel like each region has various slang and terms (Think U.S Vs U.K English) and I would love to learn various slang in other languages

Love it! I think as long as your idea gets across you're fine. It's not a grammar english test.

I used to be a grammar nazi and find it annoying now.

I don't remember my Spanish lessons, but perhaps write a post with both languages so everyone can engage?

I'm willing to do spanglish and see how it goes.

Just kidding hahaha, only bilinguals would understand the mess that we say and write in spanglish.

There's nothing stopping anyone from posting in other languages though? Anyone can do so. And anyone can add a tab/category themselves. So if you want to post in another language, you can!

English is your second language and your writing is superior to about half of the people that post here. But yes, this is a great idea.

I think way to much before I write a post, and have to ask a friend of mine to ensure if the comment or posts is written correctly before I post.

As someone who only speaks English, I would be at a disadvantage if they were only in other languages. I think it would be cool if all posts were able to translate to other languages.

Ahh I so wish I spoke Spanish. Took 2 years of it in HS and pretty much forgot everything I learned. I should've stuck with it. Would come in SUPER handy now... With that being said, this is an inclusive platform, and I'm sure you aren't alone! Post in spanish! Give us english only speakers a taste of our medicine and make us translate!

I could see the value of posting in other languages. On occasion I will hold a demo in Spanish, doesn't happen often but still, would like to practice my "business Spanish" as that's the only area of the language I really struggle.

I’d prefer to have 1 “lingua franca”. The best common language for us all is English. So I’d prefer to have all content to be in English.

Glad to know I’m not the only one that English is their second language. I don’t have difficulty understanding per se, but when I write anything, I’m super self-conscious about it.

Mate, I'm from England with English being my only language (apart from 'hello, two beers' in two languages and I still don't get the acronyms and abbreviations as the majority of this forum is from the US. 

Always tell them I'm a Brit when I don't get it and everyone is happy to help and teach!
