    Language on 1union.

    Post by Madwolf on Sun Mar 02, 2008 1:48 am

    This is a very difficult thing to decide and needs thinking about, so lets hear your opinions.

    In many international communities and co-operations, there is the problem of language, obviously.
    It creates a bit of a 'barrier' sometimes.

    Some of the options we have:
    -Speak in any language we want [French, Japanese, Yapese]
    -Only speak in one language [Which would probably be English, as it is the de-facto, in the same way people trade internationally in US$]
    -Speak in a small variety of selected languages, [This would need more discussion, English and Arabic are likely to be used] This could be anything from 2 to 20 languages, The most commonly spoken languages [or the languages that most of our members speak]

    The first option - any language we want - would allow anyone to come on the forum, but unfortunatly, i think it would cause a lot of problems, it could get to the point where no one understands each other, and would be rather chaotic.
    there would be problems with communication and also a lot of problems with people respecting each other and braking the rules, someone could insult someone else and the admins and moderators would not know, If one person said somthing nasty in a language i did not understand, and caused a lot of offense to people, it is less likely a moderator like me would do anything, as i would not know that they are saying such things.

    Second option - One language, preferably a widely spoken one like english, this would simplify things a lot and cause less problems with comunication, most conversations would be understood by everyone here.
    The problem is, which ever language we choose, there may be many people who speak it, but not everyone will speak it, meaning some people will either have to learn the language or not join.
    We could lose many potential members.

    Third option - Use multiple languages, but those languages would be limited to a few selected languages [for example, the 5 most widely spoken languages]
    In my opinion, this would be a good comprimise, a lot less people would be alienated, but a lot of the time we can understand each other some of the time.
    This option would have to be discussed in more detail,
    Like, we could have a main language, but if people really wanted to, they could speak in one of the forums secondary languages.

    There would also be the comprimise of people learning basic english, and being able to talk in a secondary language which another member would help translate.



    Whcih ever option we choose, remember, if you have trouble comunicating, ask a fellow member, we are like family here Smile.

    no myfriend . u r only thinking of middle east , what about the rest of the world ?

    if u think we will use arabic language in this forum becos the middle east is big and there are many ppl who speak arabic , then what about the contenent of SOUTH AMERICA ? all the countries there speak SPANISH language except for BRAZIL . they are more than arabs in population . and don't forget the country of SPAIN .
    therefore, we will not use arabic language in the forum and we will consider arabs under the english language

    I think that we should stick to english cause you know, most of the users on here would understand it and in case they dont, there are many translators available out there like babelfish and many others. Also i do believe that this is a good way to join arabs with other users because otherwise, i mean if you implement arabic language , they maybe would just talk between them in their language and we wouldnt be able to understand them.

    How about having a few forum sections that are dedicated to learning particular languages [For example, Spanish] where if a person is learning spanish, and another person speaks spanish very well, the second person can help out the first.

    The only problem with this idea is that people who are more confident in speaking a particular language other than english, is that they may just use the language forum for general chat and limit themselves to that area.

    You know, I suppose, our aim is in creating the so-called language environment which can help us with mastering the language.
