New Poll: Non-English speaking people and linux.com.

We get tons of people that want to work on linux.com, yet, they can't interface with the rest of the staff simply because they can't communicate well in english. What to do...

Check out todays poll and give us your opinion on what you think we should do with people that want to help with linux.com but can't communicate with us because they don't speak english.

Here are a couple of things that we could do:

One is to build up an exchange program of sorts where if there is a project that needs say people that speak an arabic dialect, then we help try and get people associated with those projects.

Build an International Database of people that want to help out with projects. This would provide webmasters all over the world that are building linux based pages to find people that want to help.

Anyways, I don't have all the answers, maybe someone could come up with a viable soloution for this problem.

Yours, Trae
