I think limiting what languages that can be used limits expression. Amd aince most on the site are english speakers allowing other languages wouldnt really wouldnt change the site that mich except to make it a more open atmosphere.

Actually, we'd have to waste time with translators, which may give inaccurate translations.

I think there is a spanish debate site, but I don't think it has any relations to DDO. Just type in http://www.debate.com.mx/

If you don't know English then you can gert out.

Sometimes there's a concept in Chinese with awkward English translations. If I'm talking to a user who speaks Chinese (like wrich) then it would be useful to be able to type it out. (I rely on pinyin without tones at the moment but it may not always get the message across). Also, names in other languages that don't have accents look ugly. Fauré's name would be pronounced differently if it were spelt without the acute accent...

I'm not saying we need extended discussions in non-English languages, but sometimes it's helpful if you can type just a few words in another.

Yes i agree. Also people from different cultures could come on here together and debate each other its not all about us. And they would offer good perspectives.

If this is about the filter, then I agree that the filter should be dumped.

No its not about the filter. Just specifically the languages for me at least. I actually like the filter for this site but i could go either way on that.
