Re: French Users Group

I'm not aware of a French forum. What if we had a French discussion forum here on this site? (John, if you're reading this, what would you think?)

Just an idea,

Claus

Re: French Users Group

I also am not aware of a French user group or forum.

I can see some potential problems with adding other languages to this forum.

I'm not sure how we would structure support of other languages. Would it be a single French forum for discussion of all CoCreate topics, or would we need to duplicate the current topic structure as sub forums under a French category or forum?

Sometimes people contact me directly with questions and problems but I only know English. We would need volunteers to be moderators and provide support for other languages who could also communicate with me in English.

If we add French then what about other languages? I know that English is not the first language for many of the people who post here and sometimes they struggle with English. They might like to have a forum in their native language as well. How many do we support and when do say no more?

As you can see this could quickly become difficult to administer and moderate. So my first reaction is to oppose adding new forums for other languages, but if others disagree I'm open to discussion.

Re: French Users Group

All good points, John!

So here's how I see it:
  • There should be a moderator for the new forum(s) who speaks both French and English fluently. (I can read French if I try hard, but would not be able to properly respond in French.)
  • There should be only one or two French forums; duplicating the English forum structure seems like too much effort.
  • Other languages: Well, for most major languages, there are already user forums out there, so I don't think we'll have too many requests from other regions.

Claus

Re: French Users Group

I think that the french forum must have 3 or 4 sections:
1- Modeling general
2- Drafting general
3- Model Manager general
4- Customize Modeling
5- Customize Drafting
May be one more: CoCreate General where we can send all idea or question about CoCreate. In France, CoCreate is not very used. So if the customer can exanche some ideas, problemes, ... that can boost the CoCreate products.
I speek not very well english, but i can help you for the translate. I'm Proofreading for the CoCreate newsletter in french.
