Probably spelt that wrong, Im not a native French speaker myself, but it occurs to me that being a Canadian company, it seems odd that there isn't french localisation available on the forum, or for that matter the main site.

RE: En Francais, sil vous plait?
you want "Le Computers De Canada" there eh

you cant honestly want a French/English forum???
That would seal the deal for me and leave for good, this forum is already on my short list with the way its runs and how topics get derailed
This would only further complicate things in an already messy house.. better to clean up and tweak the rules before adding something thats not required.

Make everyone talk in french? God I hope not, I suck at french. But its trivial to add a language pack to a forum, at least it is in phpBB.

I do speak french, and french is my mother tongue, but I do hope that Canada Computer will keep its identity the way it is, and so far I was able to get served in either language very well at the Merivale location many time

No thanks. Its bad enough the horrible slow talking phone menus for HP/Bell/Xerox Canadian business support take twice as long because of the french nonsense. I don't need it here too.

Another survivor of Xerox tech support huh? Tongue

IDK, Im not married to the idea, just thought it would be nice to have if it wasnt hard to implement. I know in PHPBB all it entails is an option that makes the forum interface english based or french based depending on the setting.

Just upload it to the the forum, option in the UCP, or just add the lang in the template in the footer. Its looks good.

French people are welcome to use the forum the same way we're required to use their forums, google translate.
