But what if we write in both languages? Or ask for help in translating a term or something? There are a lot of crafts that you wont find in here that we do that interest a lot of people but can't really be shared because of the language barrier

That's fine! Smiley  You can do that on the main craft boards though, so all members can benefit from the discussions.

The City Guide boards are for discussing local craft-related topics.  Projects and general crafty chat should remain on the main boards.

maybe we could set up a list of people that could translate.
i can, especially spanish-to-english, if it's not grading week or some other crazy time.

I think doing the best possible to post in English is the best bet.  Leah, myself and all of the moderators need access to posts at all times.

i meant, if a person wanted to post in English and couldn't, they could send the text to the translator people first.
say it was a tutorial or something long...

Yeah!  That would work.  I sometimes use http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ too.

uuuuughgghhhhgggghh hh.... sorry, as a language teacher i find out every day how horrible translation sites are for producing text.  for understanding, it's decent.... sometimes.  i even use it myself, on difficult languages.  BUT i would never use it to produce a text for publication, even somewhere casual like this.  just because computers aren't really good at translation ... YET. 

sorry, i am taking this tangent way out.

Hi! I know I'm late to the party. Specially because I had been looking around (A LOT) before I finally registered. So first things first... I'm Cynthia and, even though right now I'm some sort of nomad, I'm from Argentina.

At some point I saw this post and have been thinking about the matter ever since. This is clearly a one-official-language community at the moment. This means that, in order to follow the present rules, all of us Spanish/German/Chinese/etc. speakers have to make an effort to adapt. The truth is moderators can't take responsibility for what isn't expressed in English and I believe they are an important factor in keeping such a healthy, friendly atmosphere on Craftster. This would explain why the regional boards' purpose isn't to be able to speak in whichever is the local language.

So... My proposal is the following: How about creating a Spanish-English dictionary? Simply creating a topic, where we can all add crafting terms we learn, ask about those things we can't figure out and maybe even include a list of useful links to websites in Spanish. I think this would be useful even for those who can't speak the language and happen to come across some pattern/tutorial in Spanish.

Regardless of this, I'd love to see a Latin American board, since there really is so much going on there in terms of both tourism and handcrafts. And in this board we could have our dictionary!

OK, I got carried away and this turned out to be really long. If anybody needs me to translate this into Spanish, I'd be more than happy to do it.

// OK, me entusiasmé y esto resultó ser muy largo. Si alguien necesita que lo traduzca al español, me encantaría hacerlo.
