A Forum in German

feedback

#1

Maybe there already is one and I just overread it (if so please send me the link) but I’m missing a German forum.
Since pretty much everything in this forum is in English I assume not many people expect German threads or don’t even go onto this side because they assume not to find anything in their language anyways.

Therefore I’d be very happy if we had this forum in different languages. Meaning when I go onto the home-side of wattpads community I wish I could choose my language and by that be led to a forum that looks the same as the others but is supposed to be in that specific language.
If I choose German I therefore see different posts (most probably only in German) than if I choose English.

You’d have the advertisment-part, the story-games part etc.

That would make it way easier to have your stories be popular even if you’re not writing in English.

Hey

Das Forum hier sieht zwar so aus, als wäre es nur auf Englisch, aber jeder kann einen Thread eröffnen, der auch für eine andere Sprache ist.
Wenn du deine Geschichte teilen willst hier, kannst du das gerne tun, aber bitte nur in den #share-your-story threads.
Es ist dort egal welche Sprache dein Buch hat. Ich hab sogar schon mal ein Buch gesehen, das auf Russisch war.
Wenn du weitere Fragen hast, kannst du gerne mich fragen oder hier ‘Ask the Ambassadors Anything’ , nur dann eben muss die Frage auf Englisch sein.

Hier sind deutsche Chats:
Deutsch Chat!
Deutsche Fantasy-Autoren

Hey,
danke für deine Antwort.
Ah, ja, ich sehe grade, dass das erste Topic auch eine gute Anzahl an Aufrufen hat. Gut zu wissen! :slight_smile:
Wäre es nicht vielleicht dennoch sinnvoll zumindest ein Untertopic für andere Sprachen zu machen, damit sie nicht im ganzen English hier verloren gehen und besser gefunden werden? Oder einen Hashtag “German” bzw “Deutsch”? Dann könnte man sie zumindest über die Hashtag-Suche finden. (Aktuell scheint es den nämlich noch nicht zu geben, falls ich das Tag-Konzept nicht falsch verstanden habe)

Schau nochmal nach wegen dem Tag “german”

kein Problem

There’s simply too few users of this site to make a different forums for all different countries. However, as Matz has shown, there are a few chats for German people :slight_smile:


#8

Maybe the reason for that IS that this forum seems to be only in English? :confused:
How about if you only created forums for different languages if there are enough posts in the language/with the hashtag?

The reason that this forum is primarily English is that English is one of the most used languages worldwide (excluding Chinese, but those people cheat. They have 1/7th of the world population in one country), so it’s easiest to use for everyone. If everyone would speak their own language, barely anyone could communicate anymore. What use is a section like Improve Your Writing or Industry Insider if there’s only five people from your country? They can’t provide much help. It isn’t going to change

True which is why it makes perfectly sense to keep English the major language on here but what sense does it make to promote a story that’s written in e.g. German when you’re either not really found because of all the English stories and the people who don’t understand your language have to see your post but have no idea what you’re saying?
Wouldn’t it make sense to create such forums at least when it comes to the promotion part of this website?
By seperating the promotions into their languages you’d have quite a lot more order in those forums and everyone would only see topics in languages they speak/want to read/write in. -> more forums but less posts in every one of them

I highly doubt that’ll ever happen. Sorry mate
