WordPress.com forums, Internazionale

We’re always trying to get everyone the best information possible, and we take pride in our stellar support service. Sometimes, though, we run into a language barrier; not everyone blogs in English (thank goodness!).

So we’ve set up forums for some of our most popular languages: Español, Deutsch, Português do Brasil, Français, Italiano, Bahasa Indonesia, Nederlands, Svenska, Português, and Türkçe. A few of these are even in the correct language! (We’ll work on getting them all fully translated soon.)

Hopefully, these “international” forums will grow into great communities for sharing help, ideas and good times just like the English speaking forums have.

PS: Most of the translation was done by real people, but some of it was done by machine; don’t laugh too hard :)

    Many thanks from germany

    Just kidding :) Good work!

  10. helgeduelbek

  11. The Editor

    Awesome. And the features just keep coming

  12. Boeun

    Thanks a lot! / Grazie mille! ;)

  14. happyatom

    Пишут, и ещё как (вроде), только что то все русские пишут по английски ;)

  15. Brent

    Why not just setup a global feature for language translation? There are wordpress plugins that allow translation. Why not just use these so everyone may participate in one forum, rather than having a forum for everyone?

    With this, the language that you choose in your profile, will be the language that is displayed, just like in your dashboard. Why not make it this way for all of wordpress, rather than just parts of it?

    That or just make everyone learn English.

    Just kidding!
    :cool:

  16. charleslemark

    I wish you would set-up more languages, specially Tagalog/Filipino..

  17. Fabio Bracht

    Brazil can count on me to help and chat in the forums. Way to go!

  18. जगदीश भाटिया

    Waiting also for Hindi forum.

  19. Ryan

    It would be cool if you guys could set up forums that are for general stuff, and aren’t related to getting help with WP at all. Like a huge community of WPers that could talk about whatever.

  20. rumours

    Yeah!!!WP rules,
    Cheers 8)

  21. insomnity

    Oh goodness. great work.

  25. satur9

  30. jornada

  35. sulz

    excellent job, wordpress! i hope to see the addition of more languages, like malay, german and maybe even mandarin (chinese), japanese and korean!

  36. saa

    Well done! but half of the population of the world is Chinese ;), how about their language to include?

  37. Kartik Mistry

    What about one forum for all Indic Languages? We really need it!!

  38. namxman

  39. Phoenix

    Absolutely Thoughtful! Just like WordPress..

  40. Klisiu

    Yeah maybe forums will be in polish (at least) :-D

  41. salute

    Thanks WordPress.com. I think, that forums will be very useful for WordPress.com users.

  42. Nicole

    Great!

  43. Cem Basman

    We in Germany are discussing right now the possibility of automatically connecting the comment function of blogs to forums. Everytime somebody comments on a blog post that comment would appear as a forum post and start a thread in a central forum. The reason for this would be to promote less known blogs and to encourage commenting there.

    What do you think about this? Does this make sense to you?

  44. ching07

    great idea! i am bisaya, try to speak my language. how can i put smiley face here?

  45. ramoody5

    Iwas shocked that there was no arabic!!!!!

  46. brackeblogt

    thx for the dutch version!
    wordpress is one of the only ww-things that made it so far///

  47. Ricardo T.

    Great done, folks

    but I can’t understand the purpose of two separate “Português do Brasil” (sic) and “Português” forums. Portuguese is but one language -or it was, last time I checked. In my humble opinion, this is totally non-sense; you are isolating and labelling speakers of the same language just for they nationality. I’m a Galizanman myself, are you going to set up any “Português da Galiza” forum? :(

    Indeed, we don’t have an American English forum, an Hibernian English one, an Australian English one, Scottish English and so on… Italian and Spanish (and French) have too a lot of dialects and “differences” among regions, countries and continents. Portuguese is the same language on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. We can deal with a few differences…

    Wouldn’t it be great to have an unified Portuguese language forum? As for me, it would. Absolutely.

  48. Beate

    What about changing the Swedish forum to a Scandinavian language forum?

    We have no problem communicating in the two Norwegian languages, Swedish and Danish at the same time.

    Just a thought.

  49. attraversogiardini

    Good Idea. Grazie from Italy :)

  50. Chelsea

    awesome, very helpful!

  51. phrostypoison

    Wow, Indonesian is one of the top languages!

  52. frenchninja

    Thanks :) how long before the dashboard gets translated too, or have I missed the best-kept secret? :) Top work as always.

  53. Thomas

    I think it’s a good idea. Thanks!

  54. Michael Sync

    cool… i hope, i can join the translation team for localizating of my language.

  55. Alter Ego

    Wow, now I got very confused when I came in to the Forum, and was redirected to the swedish one, who didn´t have anything in it.

    So I have to ask, shall every country start their own support forum or is the the meaning that someone shall translate everythin from the orginal forum?

    I don´t recognice me in the old forum either, so this realy mixed up my head :-)

  56. DrumaTix

    Svo er náttúrlega spurning hvenær heimsveldið Ísland fær sitt spjallborð.

    -Iceland, with it’s population of 300.000 anxiously waits for its own forum. :D

  57. that girl again

    Great, now can we please have forums that look like forums again instead of that weird simulacrum of this blog?

  58. bApHoMEt

    Bella storia, i wordpress manager ruleggiano come al solito
    That’s cool but I’m afraid that nessuno qua intorno riesca a capire what’a’heck I’m saying… Espexially if I go on mixin’ English e Italiano…
    C’est bien, au revoir, madames et monsieurs!

    AF :)

  62. meteo

    Danke schön oder schoen.

  63. Zaid

    Where is the Arabic in all this? I thought it was a pretty hot language these days.

  64. Milla

    ¡Caramba, pero ustedes no paran de impresionarme! (I’m getting out of original compliment words in English for your outSTANDING work and CARING) SO WELL DONE!!! And thanks, guys! :D

  65. MyScribbles: Write-ups of an Afghan

    good luck with the new forums. I hope they too become vibrant communities just like the English forum.

  66. itsmeritesh
