I just came upon this non-English (Portuguese, according to Google Translate) answer.
Google Translate came up with an incomplete translation which, incidentally, mentioned the Lord of the Rings (!), so I am quite doubtful about its accuracy (either that, or the answer really did mention that). I will admit that I became quite frustrated at an answer that I could not understand, let alone comment on.
Although the poster of the question lives in Brazil, where Portuguese is the local language, the question itself was written in quite understandable English. From what I could tell, there is also an unofficial policy on SO and its sister sites about English being the preferred language.
Therefore I left a (hopefully polite enough) comment to the poster of the answer, indicating that they should consider translating the answer to English.
Should I have done something in addition or differently? Is there a policy, official or unofficial, on record for this?
