German forums, offer to support as a moderator, ...

Hi Q&A team,

the Q&A forums are pretty good. But unfortunately in english only.

As a long time Microsoft MVP (2001-2018, Visual Developer ASP.NET/IIS) from Germany, who has provided several forums for many years I know how important it is for German speaking users to have a place for their questions in their native language.

So I would ask if there is any chance to open a German speaking area in your Q&A forums? Of course each user could write their question in German, others in French, Chinese, ... But this results in a bit of chaos :)

If possible I would moderate, administrate, host, ... the forums on my own. But currently there is no suitable software available and writing my own forums software lasts a bit too long. Therefore I would offer you to help here as moderator and/or supporting administrator.

So if you have any idea how I can help you let me know. (i.e. we could start with developer forums like .NET, .NET Core (subdivided in ASP.NET, WinForms, ...), SQL Server, ...)

Thank you in advance und I hope to hear from you soon.
Stefan Falz

Good day Stefan,

The QnA system does not support non-English languages. This is a technical issue of poor development system and not an administrative decision. The team are working on this issue and the non-English forums will be opened here in theory once it will be supported.

There are other activates which you do and other community projects which you can join and contribute. You are welcome to join Microsoft Community Ninjas and volunteer for different community activities starting with writing new Wiki articles about Microsoft technologies and services.

Yes, we are working on supporting non-English sites where users can ask the questions in their language.

To ensure we keep everybody up to date, we are going to close this feedback as it is duplicate already with another one we have. Please follow this feedback page for status on when non-English will be supported. Thank you!
