What sites are there, similar to Stack Overflow, but in different languages?

By this I mean:

  • Public programming Q&A sites and communities
  • Not in the Stack Exchange network
  • With original content (not SCRAPERs)
  • Not in English

We often find these sites have great ideas and great communities. Looking at them helps us serve you better!

Some examples: http://segmentfault.com/, http://entredesarrolladores.com/, https://teratail.com/...

    So tempted to close... This question does not appear to be about the software that powers the Stack Exchange network. Can you explain why you posted this here? – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 14:17

    Public programming Q&A sites and communities, you mean those respecting the Q/A format, or does MSDN qualify too? – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 14:19

    @PatrickHofman we learn from other sites in order to build "the software that powers the Stack Exchange network", so yep, it belongs here IMO. We're mostly interested in non English stuff. – Sklivvz Nov 15 '16 at 14:20
  • @Pat request here is for sites with overall design close to SE sites, mainly voting system, reputation, etc. All the old school forums don't fit into this, of course. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Nov 15 '16 at 14:55
  • It seems "programming ... communities" are allowed too, so that would make it overly broad. @Sha – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 14:56
  • @Pat "similar to Stack Overflow" is the first criteria. :) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Nov 15 '16 at 14:57

    @Sklivvz Wouldn't this get better attention on Meta Stack Overflow anyways? – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 14:59
  • "Not in the Stack Exchange network" - why? What's wrong with local SO sites? By the way they do have their own rules :) – Qwertiy Nov 15 '16 at 17:58

    @Qwertiy Because Stack Exchange employees are already aware of the existence of Stack Exchange sites. – user315433 Nov 15 '16 at 23:41
  • @zaq, didn't look into his profile. So this question is about other sites absorbtion, like it was with hashcode? – Qwertiy Nov 15 '16 at 23:54
  • @Qwertiy not really. It's about research, these sites typically look at us and solve a local problem. We want to look at them and see what we could be doing better. – Sklivvz Nov 16 '16 at 9:07

There's a Polish Stack Overflow-like site forum.pasja-informatyki.pl. It uses Question2Answer platform. Some stats:

  • 24K questions
  • 55K answers
  • 11K users

It's the only major Polish programming community that I know of that uses a Q&A system. There are, however, many forums:

  • Polish PHP programmers? There's gotta be a joke in there somewhere... – user1228 Nov 15 '16 at 18:26
  • @Won't What do you mean? – Michał Perłakowski Nov 15 '16 at 18:30
  • I dunno. Something deep inside me is screaming for a joke, but I just can't... – user1228 Nov 15 '16 at 19:00
  • And also, there is a Vietnamese site that I think is stealing content from us. – aminabzz Apr 19 at 12:17

Hebrew Q&A programming site: https://safot.cs.technion.ac.il/ which is an internal Q&A site of a major Israeli University and intended for their own contents, also using Q2A platform.

It contains some nice design ideas not present in Stack Exchange, e.g. Top Contributors and Site Status in their homepage.
