I have a large percentage of Spanish and Portuguese speakers on my site and I'd like to offer my site in those languages. The language packs in IPB are a great tool for allowing a site to be translated from English to another language, but they leave something to be desired for having a site with contemporaneous multiple languages options.
The biggest problem I am finding is the lack of support for translating forum names and descriptions. This problem can be extrapolated to names of IP.Content databases and categories (inclulding the built-in Articles database).
I would like to suggest that a mechanism be implemented for translating things like forum names. One way would be to accept language strings for forum names. Another way might be to have forum names stored in a language pack. You could set a name for each forum in its forum settings, in the default language, but each time a forum is created a new language string could also be created for that forum. The default behavior would be to grab the forum name as its entered in the settings, but if the user has another language selected, the translated language string could be used instead. I'm just throwing out some ideas here.
Is anybody else out there looking for true multilingual capacity in their IPB site?
Well, I am bilingual myself. But I have never seen a forum where topics are mixed in different languages. Normally I see boards where separated forums created for each language, e. g.
