Bilingual messages
« on: March 07, 2015, 01:10 PM »
In this forum there are many people whose native language is not English. I among them. I would like to know if it would be polite if we the "foreigners" could post our messages in bilingual mode (this message is a example). First in English and then in our first language. It is possible that those who knew Spanish could benefit more from my contributions ( the day I make valuable contributions, of course  [crying]) if also I write in Spanish.

Spanish "subtitles":

En este foro hay muchas personas cuya lengua materna no es el inglés. Yo entre ellos. Me gustaría saber si sería correcto que nosotros, los "extranjeros", pudiéramos publicar nuestros mensajes en forma bilingüe: primero en inglés y después en español. Es posible que los que supieran español pudieran beneficiarse de mis aportaciones si estas están escritas en mi lengua materna, en la que me expreso mejor. El día, claro está, que haga aportaciones de algún valor  [crying].

¡Por supuesto Javier!

I am not fluent in Spanish, but did spend a few months in Valencia and thoroughly  enjoyed it.  I also enjoy trying to keep up on the language as best I can so I say go for it!

Cheers. Bryan.
People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along?

Sure.  Feel free to post both in English and Spanish.

I think the Brits around here have been bilingual mode for quite a while.  [smile]

This is a very good idea.

Struth, what a bonza!

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.
