Why is this site so English centric?

I typed in an answer in French and got most helpful it was just one sentence: "J'aime manger des pates" for a question @_zara_ had and it got taken down for "grammar". I assume because it was not in English . I can understand wanting questions only in English but absolutely everything in English? This is getting annoying.

Updates:
According meson fields as long as I provide a translation I'm fine so that's probably what I will do from now on.

  • If you specify an English translation, then it won't be against the rules, you know.

  • If I spot any greeks asking questions I answer in greek. I don't see something wrong with that.

  • What? Why? I really don't have a problem with it, as long as it's not paragraphs of writing and it doesn't take much effort to translate it.

    • But why is that a rule? I know it is one but don't agree with it.

  • Because it's in English , there are other versions of this site in other languages.

  • GAG is a global community who communicate in a single language. Think of it like this, Let's say I am from France and I start posting all my content in French, and you are from China and start posting in Chinese... We will never get along.. Posts on GAG are expected to be in English . It is outlined in the FAQ.
    We have sister sites in other languages; Spanish, Turkish, and Portuguese for now. We are rapidly moving into other languages, and French will be available soon.
    GAG community has been globally expanding fast recently, and there has been an increasing amount of non-English posts lately. So, thanks for bringing this up and for giving us a chance to address this issue.

    • Thank you for your relieving response. I just like exercising my ability to use different langauges, If I can do that somewhere on this site I'd be hapy that's all...

  • i once the most beautiful thing in italian for a rate question...
    they removed it!!!
    the girl listed her country as "Italy" if she was asking a question why not respond in her native language?

    I totally am right there with you bro!

    • haha yeah...

  • I never saw that before I wrote a couple of things in irish and had no trouble posting them. I presume it is English centric because as far I can see most members are americans. Must remember to translate my irish in future.

  • English is the universal language of commerce and communication, It is an efficient combination of literal German and the nuance of french. Uses far fewer words than Spanish,

    • There are other languages in the U. S. besides English .

    • @hypno-trip It's the official language and the most widely used in the country.

    • The U. s. actually has no official language, you might want to check on that...

  • you signed up... why complain?
