That's my fault.
On the contrary. Your contributions in this regard are more signifigant than about %99.9999 of the people here. Not only that, but its your efforts (and the implicit impact on SiteDocClan and pmdev (as there is overlap between the two)) that has even lead to these questions being raised. My point was not that you had not done enough, but more that we simply cant expect one person to do it all and as such are unlikely to get comprehensive translations.
That means we can't have a separated index for each translation language, until I have at least 75% of the FAQ translated.
Well, really determining if your latter point is true is the whole point of this discussion. While everybody is welcome and encouraged to provide their POV on this subject I personally think your own views carry much more weight than the unilingual folks. How do you feel about the idea of a Portugese FAQ that had english links where you had yet to tranlate a normal link? Would you prefer to have links to the translations associated to the english links or would you prefer the links on a seperate but not totally translated page?
Also, there are lots of multilingual folks that participate here. Personally I would think it would be a good thing if our sizable French and German population contributed some translations. :-)
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
