More or less, I tend to agree with Louis -- why have a disincentive for 
people to post (or make posting laborious)?
But one thing that occurs to me that perhaps Franz could help with, is 
to add to the monthly message from the list server something about this 
Example for discussion purposes:

"The primary language of Scribus list is English, and in general this is 
the language which will most easily allow your post to be understood by 
the entire Scribus team as well as most list members.  The best answer 
for your question/problem is likely to be a composite of several answers 
from different members.
This having been said, if you have difficulty with English, feel free to 
post in your primary language (plus English if possible), since as a 
group the Scribus team and users are quite multilingual, and can help 
with the translation as needed."
