# Encourage to participate other language communities

I am attending an on-line education program in my country. The Mathematics platform looks like the ideal place to make knowledge exchange and for this reason I am interested in knowing if it is allowed to participate in other languages, most of my companions are not English fluent speakers.
If I invite some colleagues.

Questions

a: Can we post questions in Spanish?

b: Can I invite my professors for helping the community answering in spanish too?

• The analogous discussion for StackOverflow: Non-English Question Policy, and the meta discussion. – Douglas S. Stones Aug 23 '13 at 20:12
• I like Potato's suggestion: tagging questions written in Spanish with (spanish). Bilingual users could follow that tag to provide translation, while users not interested in the tag could ignore it. I see no potential problems, as long we have at least one Spanish-speaking moderator to sort out any issues arising from such posts. – user Aug 23 '13 at 20:38
• I think tags are a good strategy —if I am aloud to say—, and a better strategy than a site for every language, because this last strategy tends to split the math knowledge, —I assume— several people are multilingual. – Haizum Skallah Aug 23 '13 at 21:08
• If there end up being a lot of non-English questions, it might be nice for SE to implement a languages preference in each user's profile so that people only need to view questions tagged as a language they can understand. – robjohn Aug 23 '13 at 21:31
• That, and having translate capabilities. Also in addition to tags would be interesting to have some "group" tools. Meaning, preferences for selecting people and their posts over other contents. – Haizum Skallah Aug 23 '13 at 21:53
• looked it up, lenguaje = language. Oh, in Spanish. – Will Jagy Aug 23 '13 at 23:42
