Well, this is not really a “feature”… but I couldn’t find any thread about this, and it was so strange for me knowing that Couchers has been online for over a year and nobody ever said anything about this (if there is another thread about this, please just post the link and close this one… but I promise I searched! ).
So, the topic is: is there any intention to translate the site into other languages?
I didn’t have the time to see the code… are you implementing some kind of “translation tool” to help translating the site?
I guess it’s quite difficult to attract more users if the only language they can find is English (it may sound weird to some but… many people in the world can’t understand English! ).
I already help as a volunteer in BW with the Spanish translations (as did many years ago in C$), I could also help here a little bit if you start with it.
I’m an international development aid worker (I hate the English translation of this term, in Spanish we simply say “cooperante” ) and because of COVID international situation now I spend a lot of time in front of the computer and not traveling. I can use some time to help.
If the situation changes, I’ll probably travel again, and my possibilities to help will mostly dissapear (I usually travel to places where I have bad, very bad, or non-existent internet connection) so, don’t make any decision counting on my possibilities to help or not…
Summary: I think the option to view the site in other languages is a must.
