Language Policy

Unread post by machinebacon » Thu Mar 07, 2013 8:20 am

Freedom of Speech you say?

LinuxBBQ encourages forum dwellers to use their native language. Every language has the right to be heard, so if you don't feel comfortable with the unofficial Internet language English, simply use your own mother tongue.

Happy roasting everyone!

LinuxBBQ moedigt forumbewoners aan hun eigen taal te gebruiken. Elke taal heeft het recht gehoord te worden, dus wanneer je je niet comfortabel voelt met de onofficiele Internet-taal Engels, gebruik dan simpelweg je moedertaal.

(anybody who can translate this into other languages please do so, and we can post it here to get at least an overview of what languages are 'supported' by community members)

@rhow - i dunno about 'support' - french is not my mother tongue.

i think o.g can prendre le baton - i'm only any use with swearing and shouting 'lance moi un cle de dix'

@wux: 'support' was meant here as the language being understood by people inside the community. as to giving actual Linux-support: no, i expect that will often still have to be done in English, simply because maybe whoever speaks a certain foreign language might not have much knowledge about the user's particular issue. but at least they'll be able to explain themselves a bit in their mother tongue.

Hy
French is my mother tongue.

Vous pouvez vous exprimer en français sur ce forum. Si vous avez quelques difficultés
en anglais, il ne faut pas hésiter.

(Par contre pas sûr que je puisse répondre de façon satisfaisante :) )


Merci pour cette incitation.
Quelques difficultés pour exprimer clairement certaines remarques et donc
me faire comprendre (notamment sur i3), mais bon ce n'est pas grave.
Dans l'ensemble ça baigne, pas de pb avec elitist aka "cou de canard farci".
Encore félitications pour tout ce travail.

J'avoue que je n'ai pas compris tous les noms des LinuxBBQ spins :)
Assez amusants visiblement mais surtout suffisamment provocateurs
ou potaches pour ne pas être pris au sérieux par l'establishment.

LinuxBBQ鼓励论坛的居民使用他们的母语。每一种语言都有权利被听到,所以,如果你觉得不舒服的非正式网络语言英语,简单地使用自己的母语。

Maybe there is some chinese people around :-)

Italian:
LinuxBBQ incoraggia gli utenti del forum a usare la loro lingua madre.
Ogni lingua ha il diritto di essere ascoltata, quindi se non siete a vostro agio con l' Inglese, lingua non ufficiale di internet,potete semplicemente usare la vostra madrelingua.

great stuff...have nothing else to offer here. Chiming in nonetheless. Used to know Hebrew, but that's a long time ago. Some spanish too, but again, only because required in school.

We do however plan to make sure our kids are multi-lingual. Do think it is important. Kudos to MB...

You guys are awesome! srsly, i like your style, embracing the chaos ;-)
Other projects/distros seem to struggle with self inflicted conventions ...just a matter matter of time before they loose their energy/creativity. cant happen with BBQLinux.
I wanna be part of your community (yet another oddball ... just a warning ^^)
One does not simply eat off ze community grill.
So I wanna be your WINE guy. You need a wine guy, trust me. I am NOT talking about NOT an emulator. Let me quote a friend of mine from France:"Sis is not gud wine!" This is the real deal: a dogly beverage that makes you fell warm inside and not give a fuck. The best part: you can(and should!) also season your meat with it... just be careful around electronics xD

servus an alle deutschsprachigen da, freut mich hab nicht damit gerechnet und eigentlich deswegen den alten thread gebumpt. Bin selbst aus Krems/Niederösterreich aber Salzburg ist echt schön(nur regnets oft [and culture will probably slap you in the face hard once youre there]) Wegen job hab ich keine ahnung bin nicht (mehr) in der IT tätig. Aber: stepstone.at ist ein jobportal das in österreich eher weit verbreitet ist.

For the Hungarians:

A LinuxBBQ fórumán mindenki bátran használhatja anyanyelvét, ha nehézségei vannak az angollal. Ércsük' a magyart is :D

Az esetleges magyar fórumlakónak azonban teljesítenie kell még a következőket (Kexolinora nem vonatkozik, mert Vajdasági, ha ha ha):
- Gépsonkának valamilyen ínyenc módon elkészített húsételt ajándékozni (de olyat, amilyennel még nem találkozott; sok szerencsét);
- Fekete Ivánnak megadni egy lakcímet, ahol megölendő embert és/vagy egy üveg ingyen sljivot talál;
- DebianJoe-nak egy minimum 20 kilós ThinkPadet vagy ThoughBookot ajándékozni
- Pidsley-nek prezentálni egy screenshotot, amin Xorg használata mellett a szóban forgó fórumlakó rendszere nem használ több memóriát, mint 30 MB;
- Rhowaldtnak biztosítani egy évre elegendő horgolásnál használatos anyagot.


Na jó, csak vicceltem. Happy roasting :)

^ Hard to understand for a Serbian guy even if I have to drive always through Vojvodina to make a burek break but nevertheless it sounds awesome. :)

Willkommen kr3mz0r! Wein aus Österreich, da bin ich skeptisch. :) Aber wie auch immer, gut mehr Weintrinker am Grill zu haben.

Krems, na an das Eck kann ich mich noch erinnern, bei den Durchfahrten auf der A1 (stimmt's?)

Wein, also das werde ich bestimmt in Anspruch nehmen ;)

This thread was fun to read. I really wish I knew an other language that english, but I guess that is what happens when you like in the US. I understand a little german (enough to get around) but that is about it. I want to learn more languages XD
