I am not trying to hijack this list, but wouldn't it be better to have a list for each language that we support, if we have users of particular languages they can use that list and not have to struggle to use English to get help?

(Sorry, but using Reply to start a new topic is considered hijacking -- it's best to send a new message to the list.)

The mailing lists and forums for the other supported languages tend to be established only when somebody is willing to "own" them, so they will probably come (and maybe go) over time. The problem is that generally whoever has a question needs a fairly wide audience for the best chance of getting their answer, and the more the list populations are subdivided the smaller that audience gets. The Google translation capability, for instance, seems to be getting pretty good, so maybe that is an option until/unless there is a sufficiently large group to sustain the localized communities. Perhaps we should have something linked from a Support page that describes current best practice for each supported language? Then if we see that somebody is really struggling we can send them there.
