I've been informed of a need for a board dedicated to hobby discussion in the Spanish language, and have created a board for that purpose.

Not to be confused with the Wargaming in Spain board, which is specifically for gamers in Spain to discuss their activities.

As this new board is presumably intended for Spanish-speaking gamers who, unlike Armand, are not so fluent (literate?) in English, wouldn't it be a good idea to make the announcement in Spanish as well?

Has the Aramaic community been consulted on their board needs?

I know that there is a large community of Spanish-speaking readers in TMP … the problem with them is that the vast majority is not well versed in English … and to top it all they have their great prejudices when it comes to posting here .. Unfortunately there are people in the "Saxon" world that does not treat very well those who do not handle their language well … therefore … let's see…

Mon cher ami … bien sûr les enfants de la France serait plus heureux de participer au TMP … surtout dans les forums napoléoniennes….. mais je considère que le projet de loi pauvre aurait tellement de travail qui devrait employer environ vingt assistants !!!! (sourire)

Given US demographic trends and other political changes this will be very useful in both the US and Gibraltar.

wouldn't it be a good idea to make the announcement in Spanish as well?

I've changed the board name to Wargaming de Lengua Española.

And here's a Google translation of the announcement:

Me han informado de la necesidad de un consejo dedicado a la discusión de afición en la lengua española, y han creado una junta para ese propósito.

No confundir con el tablero de Wargaming in Spain, que es específicamente para los jugadores en España para discutir sus actividades.

"Me han informado de la necesidad de un consejo…"

Not good Bill…

"Me han aconsejado de la necesidad…"


" Me han informado de la necesidad…" (without "consejo")

So… the phrase would be…

"Me han informado de la necesidad de un foro dedicado a la…etc"

In the other hand…

"… y han creado una junta (?) para ese proposito."

I recomended…

"… y por ello he creado un nuevo Foro (board) para ese proposito…"

In summary….

"Me han informado de la necesidad de un nuevo Foro dedicado a la discusión de hobbies/historia sobre la base de la lengua española y he creado uno nuevo para ese proposito.

No se debe confundir con el Foro de "Wargaming in Spain" que es especifico para jugadores de España y para discutir wargames solamente."

Armand, on the plus side, you are not going to get Dog Housed on a random drive-by because Bill is not going to know what is being said.

I suspect he has a translator at hand!… (smile)

Hmm. My theory that Tango is an experimental AI bot is either wrong or the AI is more advanced than I could have imagined at this stage.

Al Bots can manage many idioms… bip! … bip!… bip…

Despite having a father who spoke Spanish as his native language, the months I spent living in Miami, and the efforts I once made to study Spanish… well, my Spanish is awful. frown

It's OK. I can't be good at everything. evil grin
