Hi guys

I would like to have your opinion on the following option (suggested by cthree): what about spliting up the Benelux Owners Forum in a French, a Dutch/Flemish and a German speaking zone and just keep a general forum for meets and general stuff. I think this could be interesting as there are a lot of s2k owners in Europe who are not so fluent in English and would like to participate.

Your feedback would really be appreciated as the administrator is waiting for a reply.

Thanks
Victor.

Do you really think that especially regarding the low volume here justiefies a split? I'm afraid that there are not enough people overhere to do this.

The low traffic is perhaps due to the fact that some people do not speak English.

I agree with Ronald, as there are only a few (+/-15) "BeNeLuxFra" members registered on this board...
However, one could write his/her posts in the desired language.
I think for all of us, it would be a minor effort to reply in the original language... (kuh,kuh, I'll be using that translate button at the bottom ALOT )

Hi there,

Just tested the "english to french" translate button and i didn't understand even 1 sentence of this thread!!! 2 or 3 english words remains in each sentence!

I don't think i would even understand a "german to french" translated sentence....

Anyway, it could be interesting to invite flemish, italian, spanish and german owners. Hope someone would manually translate the original post each time.....

I dont think we have enough members to make a split.

Wen can try it out and let the people that have a problem with english make the posts in there own language.

We can start a post in every language: e.g. First meeting
I'll post it in Flemish ,Vlopes you can post in French and let us wait for a reaction.
