    The multilingualism option provides you the chance to see more than just your community but all the others. To access other communities you can enter your profile “General Setting” and check more countries.

    The Language field select in which language you’d like to see the interface (please note that some language still have the interface in English).

    In the Multilingualism you can select all the languages/communities you want to be visible in your forum. For example if you select only English (UK) you will see only the posts of the UK community. If you select English (UK) and any other language you will see both communities, every thread will have the flag of the community it belongs to.

    The other difference if you select more than one community is that you will need to choose for which community, you are starting a thread.

  • Here's the trick for Multilingualism posting!

    If you have more than one flag checked in your profile settings, and you want to post on a certain forum:

    You can pick your forum community (and language) from the very upper left corner (A)

    And it will automatically switch your posting flag (B) to match your preferred community!

    Hope this helps!


    Here's a trick how to select the forum sections you wish to follow. Setting a forum section On / Off will either hide or show it whenever you visit the forum.

    1. Head to where the arrow points (image 1), and a tool-tip will show you have the correct icon selected.
    2. Tap on it to open a menu (image 2).
    3. Check the boxes you wish to view.
    4. Tap 'submit'

    Please keep in mind you will miss some events and news if you turn crucial Forums On / Off. This decision is best made when you are absolutely sure what information and discussions you will not miss. You can of course turn forum sections back On later.
