on non-English languages
- Dear list,
Sorry to forget about Portugal. I soon as I finished writing I
remembered all the times I played in Lisbon and POrto, and then I
remembered that Brazil is HUGE!!!

I belong to another onelist that is bilingual, it is primarily
French, but we usually do quick translations (however bad) into
English for our American friends (the English, Scottish and Welsh of
course know how to speak French already, thanks to eurostar!)...
While I respect anyone's right to post in an EC language on this
list, I guess I finally do agree with DeeDee and Gwendal that it
would be probably better to do a quick summary in English, since this
seems to be most people's 2nd language of choice, if assured
comprehension by non-EC language speakers is desired.
