Do you want site content in multiple languages?
« on: December 15, 2013, 08:22:17 pm »
Would you like a multilingual version of the site? If so, what languages?

Do you find google translations sufficient or are hand-done translations necessary?

Google translation sucks balls, you don't know how annoying is decoding what it tried to translate.

I guess some people helping with translation could be a good idea... but we gotta find someone to spellcheck the stuff.
If you can't fix your Linux with "sudo rm -rf /", try "sudo srm -rfm /".
You're welcome.

I vote no, reason why is because those who want it  translated can already have it so with google. Also, if there are other languages shown for the website it might lead to people thinking the server is *other than english* based and might start a big "WC" issues since we are to speak english in WC unless recruiting.

For stuff like important announcements sure. Aside from that as Done brought up it would mislead people into thinking this is a multilingual server which would cause problems with world chat etc.

Im surprised of course it takes moderation but the world chat is fine,its just there isnt too many people that respect the rules of it...

Multi language allows other user to be able to understand the website,and the server associated wiht it...So why is it even a poll?

This isn't a user decision its a hot situation in which admins either decide to try to amplify the user number online (active accounts) instead of a bottling paradise....

And by this i mean even if the average user had only 2 accounts,the real number online (Unique ip's) would go down to HALF....

I dnt think Its questionable...Check any major gaming webiste ull see something in common..multi language not something half assed by google..

Hello,

language selection widget is already available on Main page - http://www.monkeydynasty.org/ and it's image is available below. Multi-Language only applies for Website, game still has English World Chat and it's keeping it.

I wanna thank you for bringing this current poll.

I think that multiple-content language is a very great improvement, as there are a lot of people that have difficults when it comes to english. If we can bring them a better experience, that very very positive.

Also, we will avoid unanswering things people can easily understand in their language, or in a language they do understand better.

Thanks & Regards,
Evilnessly

Multiple languages would widen the doors to allow players across the globe to access the website and quite possible, drum up more business. There is many people in-game and on here, that has trouble understanding English. Not everyone is given the chance of learning another language, and always having to rely on others for translation or a very very screwed online translator. Lets face the facts, Google and many others 9 times out of 10 gets the translation wacked up, and makes it hard to understand anything because of the improper use of "its" chopped-up grammar usage.

I'm all for it,
