Description Brian Jason Drake 2005-11-10 07:37:03 UTC
We should be able to file bugs under a certain language if 
we don't speak English; then somebody can translate them 
into English.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-11-10 07:51:21 UTC
You can do so, but if nobody can read it you've pretty much wasted everybody's time.

Agreed. But surely some people would be willing to 
check here for bugs to translate, and once they were in 
English some people would be willing to study them?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-11-10 08:08:25 UTC
Sure, they might. So there's no reason to open this silly bug.
Comment 4 Brian Jason Drake 2005-11-10 09:35:34 UTC
Adding this feature would make it easier for translators 
to find bugs that need translating.
Comment 5 Rob Church 2005-11-10 11:25:15 UTC
Let's not make things too complicated. If someone who speaks a foreign language
spots a bug report written in that language, it can be translated there and then
- they can write a comment containing the translation. Adding additional
functionality to MediaZilla just complicates things and isn't required.

Closing as won't fix.
