Language to be used

It would be much appreciated if questions and comments and answers were made in English and not -for me and the rest of the world- in an obscure language.

Good day Carel,


maybe you noticed, that all communication from me or other members of Locus team are in English. Except cases, when user do not know basic of English and speak Czech we try to communicate in Czech language. In such cases, it clearly wrote in name of title as [CZ]. There are also cases that user speak only German. It's then marked as [DE], etc. We cannot delete some questions just because user do not speak English.


Or do you have any better idea how to make this "English only"? If you have any idea, it's more then welcome ...

I have recently seen a topic, where the question was in english and the answer was given in slovakian (I guess), which I found rather irritating, but in general it doesn't seem to be a huge problem and most people try to stick with english

Actually it was in Czech and I smiled when I saw that one. Must have been before the second cup of coffee Hana took that day. Google translate cured my curiosity.

Also I stick with Menion. It is, also for me, sometimes very hard to find the right words in a language that is not my mother language. Especially with tough problems.

I am sure that all interesting findings from the active Czech users will be brought to us in English when these have a general impact.

Offcourse you know that Locus is a Czech based company?

Thanks guys, understand. Mentioned topic - I remember that Hana found that user is also from Czech, so for better explanation, she wrote answer also in Czech. So sorry, I'll tell it to Hanka and we will try more to keep discussion language of first topic post.


Btw. believe me, that most of users from Czech, write here in English. I'm sure that most people know, that when they wants any feature, wants more votes, English is best way. Thanks for understanding and also for your opinion!

I don't mind a foreign language, but I would appreciate gramatically correct answers.

Philippe understand. Sorry, in school, English wasn't my favorite lecture. I hope at least, that information you may get from me, compensate quality of my grammar. Thanks
