I've metioned it to the staff here that they need an internal translator . Not sure they liked the idea though . They have listened and acted on other things I've sugested before though . I'm sure someone will have an open source like the translater I discribed . Not sure if there is one out already . The one for the smart phone might be still in beta I'm not sure . by mirlen101 Oct 26

Yes, but it would be great to have a translator here as well. I think it would be really cool if i could find program that would translate in subtitle for our shows that way it could be just as funny for others as the English speakers. Oh, I do mean something very open source as well. by dreagusproductions Oct 26

You can ;-) They just came out with a smart phone device that translates speech to text and mutiple languages. You talk into it, it then translates into another language in text and spoken words . by mirlen101 Oct 26

It does make more sense to use English for the simple fact that all the major websites are in English . And virtually all the largest sites are in English .It is truely the universal online language . No doubt there . And the world is now all about being online . by mirlen101 Oct 26

Better to learn English because that is more and number one important which so may people using to have conversation. by marilene Oct 25

This is a ridiculous conversation . You speak what you can . If you only speak French by all means speak French ! What other course would you have ? If you only speak English then speak English ! The alternative >learn a new language because somebody can't speak your language ! ? ;-/ Give me a break . Lets see Chinese is the most used language so I will go out and learn Chinese . Oh wait some self centered ... can't understand me because he is French so now I'm going to learn French to satisfy them ! Use some logic ! People speak what they know or prefer . Get over it ! by mirlen101 Oct 25

You and I are here on the invitation of the founder who is French and also speaks English ! If he were to answer you right now guess which language he would answer you in ! What ever language he thinks you are speaking that he also speaks ! He's not going to go out and learn a new language just to satisfy you or anyone else . by mirlen101 Oct 25
