Could we have some sort of 'translating mechanism'? This could prevent proposals like this from having to be created.
Some implementation ideas:
- Users who speak a different language could go to es.stackoverflow, etc where StackOverflow pages are translated to Spanish.
- WOT style 'translate button'.
Google Translate is pretty accurate... at least, for simple posts in well known/similar languages. (i.e. English<->French) This way, we won't have to have duplicate questions across the 'different language but same subject' sites.
(SE can use the Google Translate API, right?)
