The whole idea of consolidating forums across languages has some difficult spots.
One is the "translate" function itself.
If there's more than 2-3 words of English in a post clearly written in another language, it refuses to translate saying "it is already in that language".
So a post in Japanese characters or Portugese with "think pad" and "Selection" ... won't translate.
Yes. The problem was reported in week #1. My workaround is to edit / translate the topic title using Google Tranlsate to match the <body> language. It mostly works but it's kludgey.
