in reply to Non-English posts on Perlmonks

My instinct on seeing the portugese was to run it through the babelfish.

It took a while for me to realise it was just translations of existing content.

My opinion is that monsieur_champs would do better to provide the portugese on his(?) own site and link to it from his home node.

Yes, English is not everyone's first language, but if you can provide at least a babelfish translation (assuming your language is covered), or an English note saying which language the question is in (took me a couple of guesses :), it would help English speakers who want to help have at least a starting point.

Of course, if your intent is not to target the english speakers (as in this case), making that clear in English in your post would help :)

Of course, if the gods decide on translations, I'm sure it would be a lot better to do it in an orderly way rather than posting them haphazardly in 'tutorials'. This would be something good to aim for, but I think it needs to be well organized.
