While we certainly approve if the gist of a mesage is translated to English,
anyone can post in any language on this ML. The rules are as follows:

- French, German, Finnish, Czech and maybe other languages (even Australian) 
  are understood by developers and can expect an answer.
- Anyone who understands a posting in another language is invited to
  it for the benefit of English speakers.
- Postings in a language which noone else understands are ignored.

It has worked like this for some time and I don't think it will become
in the future.
