Just to be clear, having a discussion on this list does not require the exclusive use of English. Yes, providing translated text is appreciated, but again, translated text is not a requirement of posting to NewtonTalk. If this were a requirement, it would be mentioned in the FAQ.


That being said, I may consider adding a point to the "Mailing List Etiquette" section of the FAQ regarding providing translated text where appropriate (and if applicable).
