Hi All,

Completely agree with Paul Norman.

Being an Indian myself, I completely agree with his insight.

I also completely agree with his suggestion:
Why not languagae Group Names?]

Romance Languages: LibreOfficeInternational

English: FreeOffice

Sorry Can't give you any input on 'Mandarin: Office-免费' Hope our Chinese friends can help.

Best Regards,

It would be nice to have something that works really well inInternational English, and that sounded good to Asians as well.Chinese friends inform me that they sometimes have troubole withwords/part words that end in RMy Indian friends for the most part would have no trouble saying thename (though it may mean little to them having no immeadiate Englishcognate) - most of their languages and dialects are very rich insounds that many other ethnicities can barely even distinguish.I speak some French and Spanish and it rolls of my toungue beautifullyespecially in Spanish.I really believe that this will prove more important than some haveyet thought.Corporations have been known to invest millions on this one thng alone- I kid you not!Serious research/thought would be really worthwhile - esp if there issomeone on the list with relevent background.Why not languagae Group Names?Romance Languages: LibreOfficeInternational English: FreeOfficeMandarin: Office-免费PaulOn 13 October 2010 10:28, Friedrich Strohmaier<> wrote:> Hi Christoph, *,>> Christoph Noack schrieb:>>Am Dienstag, den 12.10.2010, 23:01 +0200 schrieb Friedrich Strohmaier:>>>> Finally there will be several flavors of pronunciation - and good>>> moments if they meat each other! :o))>>                  ^^^^>>>I hope this was just a typo ;-)))>> Oh, yes and indeed one of my top ten! :o)))>> Thanks for proof reading that attentive!>>> Gruß/regards> --> Friedrich>> Ansprechpartner / contact person for the "PrOOo-Box"> german language "best Office Suite ever" and more on CD/DVD>  -- footer updated on 2010-10-07>>> --> To unsubscribe, e-mail to> All messages you send to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted.> List archives are available at>>-- To unsubscribe, e-mail to discuss+help@documentfoundation.orgAll messages you send to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted.List archives are available at
